Is it worth finding and buying? Noting that only three tracks are Dylan songs and it was released around the same time as some of his 'lesser' works.

The Dylan tracks are 'circulating'.

Well, if you are a completist, you should have it. Otherwise, don't bother. It's typical 80ies soundtrack music. The two songs written by Bob are forgetable, his version of John Hiatts The Usual is...the highlight in this collection of low points.
If they would have included Bobs version of Couple More Years (as performed in the movie), it would have been a big improvement.

True that.

If you are a collector though, find the CD version of the soundtrack, which is rarer than the vinyl.

Night After Night is so bad it's good. Hilarious combination of overblown disco track with an all time vocal nadir.

It's Dylan, so worth finding.

Make sure you also get the session tape. It has a great unreleased song. Futhermore it reveals how "Night After Night" was made: Dylan toyed around with Billy Joe Shaver's "Old Five And Dimers", trying out different versions. At one point he played a faster version of the song. That arrangement of the song formed the basis for "Night After Night". "Night After Night" is basically a fast version of "Old Five And Dimers" with new lyrics. "Had A Dream About You, Baby" is based on Little Walter's "Crazy For My Baby" (also used for "Clean Cut Kid"). The "Hearts Of Fire" version is different from the "Down In The Groove" version.

I saw a copy in my local record shop not long ago and deliberated for a while over whether to buy it. In the end I didn't bother, it wasn't cheap and I knew I'd only be getting it for collector's value rather for any listening pleasure I might derive from it.
The other week I was sat in Costa coffee having breakfast and they were playing a song which sounded like Dylan but they had the volume turned low and I couldn't recognise it. I was listening intently trying to make out the words above the general chatter and finally realised it was Night After Night. Seemed a strange and obscure choice to be playing in a coffee shop - is it even available anywhere other than the OOP soundtrack?

Three things that are sort of acceptable about Hearts On Fire -

1) Eggs
2) Legs
3) The punch.

Otherwise forget it.

I did not know Hearts of Fire had a soundtrack with "new" songs on it. I learned something new today. Wasn't To Fall In Love With You recorded in these sessions? Probably one of the best songs not officially released.
