Label: Charly Records
This soundtrack for a little known '70s Blaxpliotation flick is really two albums. The first is the riveting funk rock of Bobby Womack in his prime. The fiery "Do It Right" recalls Womack's collaborations with Hendrix, while "Hang on There" is a funky take on the conversational talking blues idiom. The album's title track channels the pathos and street sneer of Mayfield's "Super Fly." The other album is J.J. Johnson's instrumental score that's interspersed between Womack's tracks. Too atmospheric and tepid to be memorable, it still provides a nice respite from Womack's funk.
