Flash! Ah-aaaah! Come on, you know you loved the 1981 movie. How not, with someone like Sam Jones playing the lead, in various states of undress and/or wearing leather. And the overall campiness. I mean, come on, it's campier than a Cher/Madonna/Village People concert on Fire Island during Pride Week. The soundtrack by Queen elevated the movie even further into camp heaven. For another opinion, see this.

Now some sources say the album came out in the US in February of '81, two months after the movie. I know this ain't so, as I very distinctly remember buying at least half-a-dozen copies for Christmas presents after the movie premiered in December '80 in Miami.

I still have the issue of Playgirl in which Sam appeared. Ah-aaah, indeed.
