Michael Stokes Featuring Enchantment - Deliver Us From Evil (Original Soundtrack, 1975)

Deliver Us From Evil is a fairly good Blaxplotiation movie, but like many of those films, an official soundtrack was never released (to our knowledge). The film was scored by legendary music producer, Michael Stokes along with Jimmy Roach and Paul Riser. Vocals from the soundtrack was performed by The Enchantment. The soundtrack features several cuts that are really groovy, especially the title theme. The film is filled real life type drama, so the score does well in capturing those moments in the movie. It's possible that there may be some rare 45s that contain a couple of the tracks somewhere in the world. It's wouldn't surprise me if the title theme was to appear out of nowhere. Enjoy this BP exclusive soundtrack!
