Finally!!!! i had to hunt for the record of this album for years til i finally found it,i was elated. i still tried to find a cd version of it,but gave up. now it seems..ten years later,my dream came true. i had also loved 80's movie soundtracks..i had to search for the phil collins soundtrack to "Buster" and the Halloween III soundtrack also. that soundtrack i found here on Amazon on cd and got it in a flash. luckily my brain worked quick enough to try a search for Caddyshack and i was in disbelief to find it was here. one night,there were 5 left and by next morning when i ordered it,there were 3..so when i say luckily: thats why.
As for the music...'im alright' of course is a classic now,and mr night was from a previous kenny loggins album. 'Lead The Way' is sweet and short enough,while 'Make The Movie' feels like the 2nd half on 'im alright'..indeed,listen to the Caddyshack opening credits to see how they spliced it together. Journey contributed their song 'anyway you want it' which is nice,and i suppose 'There She Goes' isnt bad. But the two weakest tracks for me are 'Divine Intervention' and 'Something on your mind'. the first is uninteresting and the latter gets quickly annoying. however,johnny mandel scores with 'marina' and 'the big bang'.
As soundtracks go,its a little lacking,but there's enough included for a kenny loggins or caddyshack fan to add this album to their collection. i mean its such an awesome movie...wouldnt you even buy spalding's gym socks if they were released? your darn right. SPALDING!..how many times have i spoken to you about your language?
..sorry grandpa,i forgot.
