Quotes

Sally Potter: Are you a Stray Cat?
Mike: No, I'm a roadie.
Sally Potter: Roadie sounds like some sort of vagrant. What is that exactly?
Mike: It's like an army batman, only without the uniform. I make sure there's enough beer, chips and rubbers to go round. I supply the birds, the pills and the pot. And anything else that might be required to satisfy their lust... carnal, or otherwise.

Stardust film sound
23 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's interesting that IMDb lists its sound as "4-track stereo" when in fact it was recorded in Dolby Stereo a full year before Tommy, although it was only presented once in this format, at the Film and Television Society meeting in Canada in Autumn 1974. This was due to there being no equipment yet available to present it in the new format, although if the mix was the same as the version shown on TV, then it would have blown the techies at the time away, particularly in comparison with the sound that was prevalent in Hollywood at the time. Even when shown in mono it is possible to hear the signature in the sound that exists when Dolby is utilised (in its analogue form) in a film soundtrack, it might be an idea for IMDb to correct its record (and if you want proof, look at the end credits).
