The album is available on Amazon but it does me no good, sadly.
Amber, It's never been on CD (at least domestically), which is too bad, because it's a nice and varied sampler. Also, Robin Johnson (who played the lead in the film) takes a couple of neat turns punking up the jailbait-anthem lode previously mined by The Runaways, on a couple of songs, "Damn Dog" and "Your Daughter is One". If you like those songs, check out Joan Jett's Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth
, one of the most underrated albums of the post-punk era.
Check the used CD bins for the album "Runners in the Night", the album by Desmond Child and Rouge that has that song. Their (or his) first album wasn't bad, although it was almost too fractured and unclassifiable at the time.
To stay on thread, I've mentioned before (and I'ma try to find that "favorite covers" thread), my favorite all time Bob Dylan cover was X doing "Postively 4th Street", which was only available as the flip side of their 45 single of "Fourth of July". I also mentioned I have been looking for it for years, as my copy got sold out from under me and the only copies I have been able to find are scratched and worn beyond any real enjoyment. Lo and behold, Rhino and amazon have released a series called "Digital 45s", a download of said recording iis available for only .99.
I downloaded it, and I have been listening to it (as well as other X albums) obsessively for about the past 48 hours. Yes, it sounds as good as it did when I first heard it. I cannot recommend it enough.
