Review by The Doctor
This is a soundtrack that was never released on vinyl (Except for a hard to find 45' containing the theme song with Keisa Brown). Any way it has recently been released. For the most part, the music contained is a bunch of 1 to 2 minute musical stings, but I would consider it a pretty solid Blaxploitation album. It contains all the typical instrumentation you'd find in a Blaxploitation soundtrack; rhodes keys, wah guitar, funky beats, etc. Enjoy.

No problem here! I just knew I would find something this scary when I was back from vacation. Thanx SelfScience and the Uploader at the forum! The movie itself can be found in Cinemageddons blaxploitation project. It's quite hilarious.


Here's my rip in better quality - from original CD (@ 320 kbps)

Five on the Black Hand side was the divide in the black community that would manifest itself in the nineties.While other films showed the ghetto,drugs,and pimps.This film showcased the African Nation in American.The Kala Nation salutes the film as revolutionary.

Of course thanks for everything from blaxploitation pride.
I have windows vista and the instructions for the .bad files would never work for me but someone finally helped me out for my system and now I'm gonna try to get any links that are left here.
Thanks for everything!
