Varese Sarabande: Porky’s Revenge on CD [1985]

Porky’s Revenge
Release Date: 4/22/14
One of the greatest line-ups ever for a pop soundtrack! 
 
Featuring: Dave Edmunds, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Carl Perkins with Slim Jim Phantom & Lee Rocker, Clarence Clemons, Willie Nelson, and The Crawling King Snakes (Robert Plant, Paul Martinez, Phil Collins with Dave Edmunds) 
 
If there’s an award for third-rate sequel with a First Class Soundtrack, 1985’s teen sex romp Porky’s Revenge remains a perennial contender. While it grossed a fraction of the original Porky’s (itself inspired by true events in the ‘50s high school life of writer-director Bob Clark), its Dave Edmunds-produced songs (the franchise’s first soundtrack release) became a landmark in the ‘80s roots-rock boom spawned by the Punk-New Wave explosion. Porky’s Revenge became an instant – if unlikely - classic when it was released, a testament to Dave Edmunds’ solid musical instincts and serendipitous work ethic.
