Two summers ago, when I was working at a summer camp in Wisconsin, I picked up a three-movies-for-three-dollars pack (one dollar per movie) and never got around to watching the presumably terrible films: Texas Justice (w/ Heather Locklear), Sleep Murder (w/ Jason Priestly) and something else...Frank Sinatra, maybe?
Anyhow, just watched Texas Justice with a friend of mine and for a two-part, three-hour TV movie about trophy wives, murder, entrapment and hung juries, it's pretty sublime/hilarious.
Best dollar I've spent in recent memory.

I just listened to it for the first time and it has this amazing balance of reaching forward and reaching backward at the same time in a way that I don't really hear often (or maybe it was just produced on the cusp of a new era). "The Girl w/ the Sun in Her Head" = A+ + + +

>>The Babys - s/t (Chrysalis 1977)
Their best album. Bob Ezrin, who hated them and they hated him. Closest to Free they did, which was the early idea. Version of "I Love How You Love Me" either annoying or great, depending on your experience at high school dances.
>>Pat Travers - Putting It Straight (Polydor 1977)

Oops, actually, Alcatraz spelled "Young" correctly (unfortunately.)
And pretty sure Rough Trade didn't actually have a "prime" -- was somehow getting them confused with fellow Canadians Teenage Head (who they probably have nothing in common with) when I bought an LP by them last week.
Also, the Robert Gordon/Link Wray LP I bought last week was pretty bad.

Which tells me unseal it and give listen. Looks like a comp combing tracks Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon and Dog of Two Head, the first two albums where they went to the denim and boogie. "Gerdundula," "Railroad," "Something Going On In My Head," "In My Chair," and "Umlietung." "Down the Dustpipe" was the first big hit from the style.
