Who knows what Dave Edmunds was thinking when he agreed to produce and assemble the soundtrack to 's Porky's Revenge! That makes sense. What boggles the mind is that Edmundsafter accepting the job, decided to treat this soundtrack -- which, let's remember, is the second sequel to a film best known for a scene of horny teenage boys spying on the girls in a gym shower and for a female character called "Lassie" who howls like a dog during orgasm -- as a prestige project, recruiting such superstars as George HarrisonCarl PerkinsJeff BeckWillie Nelsonand Robert Plant performing under Philadelphia Baby - Various - Porkys Revenge!
Crawling King Snakes moniker with Phil Collins on drums! And they agreed to do it! Most amazingly of all, they wound up with a neat little record, something that's far more fun than the accompanying film. Apart from Harrisonwho cut a previously unrecorded Bob Dylan song "I Don't Want to Do It" which is quite niceand Plantwho does a nifty revival of Charlie Rich 's rockabilly nugget "Philadelphia Baby," there aren't too many surprises in song selection, but all the performances are infectious -- Perkins is having fun with "Blue Suede Shoes," Kim Wilson sings "Stagger Lee" with vigor, Beck 's re-creation of "Sleepwalk" is uncanny -- and the result is simply a good time.
Yes, the production has dated a little bit, particularly on the blah instrumental theme song Mo Jo - Various - Black Lion Jam Session to a lesser extent on Edmunds ' otherwise fun new tune "High School Nights," but that's a Null-Uhr Express - Neues Glas Aus Alten Scherben - Live flaw, because records often do sound like the year they were recorded in.
