Jive Turkey [a.k.a. Baby Needs A New Pair Of Shoes] (1974)


In 1956, Italian Mobsters Big Tony (Frank DeKova) go to war with Black gangsters, turning the streets of Harlem into an all-out war zone as both sides call on the best assassins to level the playing field. Feared crime boss Pasha (Paul Harris) isn't about to give up his turf without a fight, even if it means calling on his most unpredictable assassins as well. It's a gang war to end gang wars, all over the numbers game.

was the soundtrack for this ever released? The movie posters list one, but all my searching turns up nothing. Would love to have the theme song, "7 come 11 you can all go to hell" awesome!
