Lalo Schifrin - Golden Needles (1974)

This is an official soundtrack release for the Blax-fu film guest starring Jim Kelly, Golden Needles. The music was composed by the legendary Lalo Schifrin (also the composer for Enter the Dragon). This is not your typical Blaxplotiation soundtrack that you would normally hear. No need to expect much of that funky bass "wah-wah" or the hard hitting congas. This soundtrack has more of a jazzy and stage-screen type of sound. Mostly mood music to correlate with scenes of the film, such as "Health Club Fight" track that is of course, uptempo.
