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

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

Carl Douglas - Somebody Stop This Madness (From The Embassy) OST 45 (1972)

Somebody Stop This Madness Carl Douglas Blue Mountain BM 1007, 1972
What the hell is this?! A new blaxploitation soundtrack discovery? Yes, and thanks to top Norwegian beat bigger and DJ Teddy Rosso, we can all hear the incredible funk of Carl Douglas before he sank into cod Kung Fu disco with his later 1970s hits. This one's a super-tight wah-wah funker (yes, it really is) and is taken from the obscure Richard Roundtree blaxploitation thriller 'The Embassy', produced in the UK in 1971, fact fans. Highly recommended - you won't believe your ears!

And he didn't hesitate to let us hear the goodness either, enjoy!

Tom Scott & The L.A. Express - The Nine Lives Of Fritz The Cat OST (Single)
Ever wondered what Tom Scott's LA Express, the masterful LA session band he played with in the 70s and sometime backing band to Joni Mitchell, would have sounded like if they got seriously funky? Well, wonder no more because this obscure soundtrack 45 will really hit the spot. Originally scheduled for an LP release, the full LP got canned when the second Fritz The Cat movie bombed, but luckily this 45 was released in limited quantities. It's a cracker - wicked mid 70s jazz-funk, super tight and with a monstrous funky vocal. Killer horn and rhythm section work means that this 45 is hot enough to melt your turntable. Absolutely brilliant.

And luckily for us comet01 over at My Jazz World decided to share this with the rest of us so we can enjoy it. Ain't life sweet?
