The Movie

The title says it all, doesn't it? William Katt and Susan Dey in this romance. Never saw it, and God willing I never will. I had a friend who saw it in the theater, so I was forewarned.


The Music

One of those deals where they probably realized they had a turkey and tried to fix it with the music. Originally they tried a score with pop songs. When that didn't work they brought Barry in to score it. When that didn't work, they went part Barry and part songs. And, well—sometimes you just need to burn the negatives and start over.


Release Notes

This was finally released in 2013. According to the notes on Amazon.com, it was produced by Neil S. Bulk and Lukas Kendall and mastered by Mike Matessino, who mixed the score into full stereo from the original 16-track tapes.
