12. Youngblood (livin' in the streets) Reprise
A relatively unknown, late blaxploitation album that forged the links of acid jazz. Often found languishing in vinyl bargain bins, don't miss it for the great latin-tinged funk of "Flying Machine (The Chase)" and several strong vocal funk tracks in typical War style. The main theme's a ten minute bomb, too.
