THE ARCHIVE: Johnny Be Good CD single

I wonder if there was a cassette sngle too? The image on the cover was taken by Tony Mottram.

The song from the soundtrack to the film.

The blurb from wikipedia…

“Johnny Be Good is a 1988 American comedy film directed by Bud Smith, starring Anthony Michael Hall as the main character, Johnny Walker. The film also features Robert Downey Jr., Steve James, Jennifer Tilly and Uma Thurman in her film debut. Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon makes a cameo appearance.

Judas Priest and Ted Nugent, among others, contributed to the soundtrack. The title track, Johnny B. Goode, originally recorded by Chuck Berry, was re-recorded by Judas Priest for the film.”

Note that the title on the CD is the name of the film rather than the track.
