I have the soundtrack on CD and the movie on DVD. (Um… I thought they were something else, someone forced me at gun point to take them, they were delivered to me by mistake…). It is not a great movie by any known measure, but it is kind of fun. Many of the songs are forgettable, but some stand on their own. Sandy Farina’s Strawberry Fields and The Bee Gee’s Nowhere Man are my personal favorites. I find the number of stars they got to do the final song impressive… also funny when you see how many of them don’t know the words to the song and look like they are reading lyrics posted off to the side or just moving their lips.
Does anyone know how many of those people were in a slump in their career or were just “B” stars at the time? There are some names in there that I thought were reasonbly established at the time like: Keith Carradine, Peter Noone, Carol Channing, Wilson Picket, Bonnie Raitt, Anita Pointer, Rick Derringer, Donovan, Jose Feliciano, Johnny Rivers, Sha-Na-Na, Del Shannon, Heart, Tina Turner, Frankie Valli, Wolfman Jack, Hank WIlliams, Jr., Mark Lindsay, Gary Wright and others.
