The Holy Grail of blaxploitation soundtracks? Very possibly. And it's that good. Now going for three figure sums, this superb 45 really deserves the hype, as both sides are super-tight. The theme's amazing - killer bassline, superb male chant carrying the melody, big drums... and the flip's supposedly a love theme but is damn funky, with a mad choppy rhythm that's all over the place, but massively funky. Without doubt, as good as it gets.
