Roadie

Roadie Soundtrack
Roadie is a 1980 film directed by Alan Rudolph about a truck driver who becomes a roadie for a traveling rock and roll show. The film stars Meat Loaf as Travis C Redfish, driver for Shiner beer who meets Lola falls for her even though she's a groupie who is on her way to give herself to Alice Cooper. Along the way it turns out that the Loaf is an awesome Roadie and a wiz at setting up stuff.  There are cameo appearances by musicians such as Roy Orbison, Hank Williams Jr., Blondie and Alice Cooper. The soundtrack is a bugger to find and is one of those gems that never made the transition to cd. A double album set that contains some rare tracks, most notably the track by Sue Saad and the Next which is uber rare. One look at the song list and you can see music from one end of the spectrum to the other. It's been ages since I've seen this film but I remember enjoying it at the time especially the scenes with Alice Cooper. Rare soundtrack that's got some purty good tunes and I'm going to put up the Sue Saad track.

It's tremendously entertaining, including a food fight with Blondie, and a song by Asleep at the Wheel.
