Not So Good even for the 70's
30 January 2000 | by tajhabSee all my reviews

It should be a crime to promote and a film with the words featuring the music of Van Morrison this film featured half of one Van song (Astral Weeks) and a full Lala from Derek & the Dominoes & a lot of other obscure background music.
