Norman Whitfield & Rose Royce - Car Wash [ost]

Born To Love You ..

The film Car Wash lacks any kind of script and feels more like a feature length music video. Screenwriter "Joel Schumacher" asked Motown's own "Norman Whitfield" to compose a set of songs to help "drive" the patchy film. Whitfield and Rose Royce created three top 10 singles from an album brimming with soul and funk. "Car Wash" succeeds by way of its mass appeal and "You gotta believe" with the Pointer Sisters is a powerful soul funk classic. Others like "Zig Zag", "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" and "Born To Love You" are equally fantastic, whilst "I Wanna Get Next To You" is one of the sexiest soul ballads you'll ever hear.

Outstanding ..

Donald Byrd & The Blackbyrds - Cornbread, Earl & Me [ost]

He's Cornbread !!

Donald Byrd and The Blackbyrds entered the blaxploitation soundtrack arena fairly late in the day with this LP for Fantasy Records. The film's subject matter is not standard blaxploitation fare, being a socially-aware story about a young basketball player. The album has its moments, a great theme is particularly notable along with some strong Blackbyrds style jazz-funk instrumentals, maybe not as nearly up to the standard of their earlier studio LPs but worth it just because it's these guys ..

Word to tha Byrd !!

Ike Turner & The Kings Of Rhythm - A Black Man's Soul

Gettin' Nasty with Ike ..

One of Ike Turner's purest skills was pumping out straight funk .. This is arguably one of the most under-rated albums ever recorded, especially when you realize that it was recorded in the 60's. Straight up, hard-hitting funk which shows a direct link from stuff like this to Hip Hop. "Getting Nasty" is one of the finest tunes ever and most of you should recognize it ..

HOT !!

Hamilton Bohannon - Stop & Go

Save Our Souls

Hamilton Bohannon debut album from 1972 that is much sought after .. The 'A' side is early 70 wah-wah funkiness of the highest order, while the 'B' side is a little deeper, kicking off with "Save Their Souls", then the awesome "Singing A Song For My Mother", an essential mellow track that must have been sampled by someone .. Overall its a great album from a legendary name that you rarely see ..

Essential ..
