Young Edward scored the soundtrack for this forgotten (gem?) 1984 movie but this is the only music of his that made it to the soundtrack. Pieces of the songs can be heard later on the Van Hagar albums. The Wild Life was written/produced by Cameron Crowe (Fast Times at Ridgemont High). Though not a sequel, it was intended as the spiritual successor to Fast Times (it even starred Sean’s brother — the late Chris Penn).
Unfortunately, the album has never been released on CD and the movie has never been released on DVD. This all stems from issues with the music rights (just sign the papers, guys!). I’d love to see this movie, not only to hear EVH’s music but because it sounds like my type of flick and anytime I can see my first crush Lea Thompson in her ’80s element, I’m there.
