Sometimes my impulse to collect things just makes me sad.
Look, there’s nothing wrong with the soundtrack to Every Which Way But Loose. As trucker movies featuring Clint Eastwood and a monkey go, it’s probably one of your better soundtrack choices. Charlie Rich, Mel Tillis, Eddie Rabbbitt — it’s fine, really, but it’s not really my thing. So why do I own this? Because it’s a test pressing, and I found it in the bins of my local record store. I’d never buy something like this online, but in the wild? Heck yes, gotta have it.
I’m a sucker.
The Every Which Way But Loose soundtrack is a dollar bin album, but test pressings always go for more than their commercially available brethren. Let’s call this one 5-10 bucks. Happy hunting.
