Don Julian wrote the music to this violent action film for the tiny Californian label Money Records. It's a raw, early 70's funk album with many great instrumental tracks recorded with a low, dirty sound. At its best, the album is small group funk overlayed with flute. Try "Lay It On Your Head" for a lesson in soundtrack funk as it should be done.
