Decent combination of classic tunes and some great performances from The Jeff Healey Band who also appear in the movie. If you have never heard Healey and his ungodly talents, then this should prove a perfect introduction.
Bear in mind that he is blind and is performing those solos with the guitar flat on his knee (??!!). It is also notable for Healey's cover of the Bob Dylan tune 'When the Night Comes Falling from the Sky.'

The first track in the movie is "Don't Throw Stones" which is being performed "live" during Dalton's first bar fight. If this song sounds familiar, it's because it is being perormed by Tito Larriva, who did much of the music in Tarrantino's "From Dusk Till Dawn" (1997).
In one version of the movie The Jeff Healey Band plays "Angel Eyes" while Swayze and Lynch dance at the bar. It's a touching scene. Everytime I've seen it since this song/scene is not in the movie. I even bought it on VHS and it is not on it. I wonder why? -Thanks to KimberlyAdd some more trivia about the songs used in Road House
