Lloyd Price - The Legend Of Nigger Charley OST 45 (1972) Blaxploitation Pride Exlusive!

The Legend Of Nigger Charley, Lloyd Price Paramount PAA-0168, 1972

Blaxplotiation.com
Here's one that most blaxploitation collectors aren't aware of - the original theme tune to the original Nigger Charley movie. Never released on LP, this 45 includes a religious gospel tune (presumably from the film), and the downtempo funky main theme. It's a good one - plenty of wah, a good chant (although dubious non-PC lyric) and even a good break with strong big band funky horns. Well worth a dig.

The donor wishes to remain anonymous. But show some appreciation all the same!
