Roadie OST (1980)

I love this's one of my favorite comedies of the 1980s, and at long last I tracked down the soundtrack. Not only does it contain tracks by one of my favorite bands, Cheap Trick, but also has a bad-ass cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" performed by Blondie...
Plus, there's the always enjoyable Asleep at the Wheel and Jerry Lee Lewis doin' the rockin' :Hot Damn, I'm A One Woman Man"
Track Listing:

01 Cheap Trick - Everything Works If You Let It
02 Pat Benatar - You Better Run
03 Joe Ely Band - Brainlock
04 Alice Cooper - Road Rats
05 Teddy Pendergrass - Can't We Try
06 Eddie Rabbitt - Drivin' My Life Away
07 Stephen Bishop & Yvonne Elliman - Your Precious Love
08 Jay Ferguson - A Man Needs A Woman
09 Styx - Crystal Ball
10 Sue Saad & The Next - Double Yellow Line
11 Blondie - Ring of Fire
12 Alice Cooper - Pain
13 Roy Orbison & Emmylou Harris - That Lovin' Feelin' Again
14 Jerry Lee Lewis - (Hot Damn) I'm a One Woman Man
15 Hank Williams, Jr. - The American Way
16 Asleep At the Wheel - Texas, Me and You
17 [Bonus] Alice Cooper - Only Women Bleed
18 [Bonus] Cheap Trick - Gonna Raise Hell

I have one word for you WOW! I have tried hunting this soundtrack down for decades. Back in the 80's & 90's there was no internet and living in Mexico made it a bit difficult to find a record store that actually had a copy of this (If it would have been transfered to CD it wouldn't have been such a problem). Ths album was never edited in Mexico as the movie never made it to the theatres here and being 12 years old at the time, I couldn't just get on a bus to take me across the border to go see a movie also, back then movies took 6 to 8 months to be shown here so imagine my wait for months and then find out the movie would never be shown here. Thanks again.

Dang, download link gone. I REALLY want to hear Blonde do Ring of Fire. Oh, it's on YouTube.

Hi! I just stumbled across this post because I'm searching for the song "Eyes of Texas" performed by Roy Orbison and Hank Williams Jr. I cannot find it anywhere!!! Is there any chance you could re-post that song? I would be so grateful!
