Once again Isaac Hayes produces a fine funk soundtrack. Surprisingly difficult to obtain on vinyl, this album contains the full nine-plus minutes of "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile", as fine a funk instrumental as you'll find on any soundtrack album. The vocal tracks are strong, and there's an over-driven funk-rock instrumental "Breakthrough" that's worth the price of the album.
