If I had a soundtrack this is what it would sound like. It would be a Blax-Fu style martial arts film. The selection of music for this compilation is a combination of library, rare funk and grooves. A particular sound was sought out and the main instruments that drives this soundtrack consist of flutes, drums, horns, and bass guitar.

The track listing of this compilation is geared to give you a feel of what this "fake" movie would be like. I'm just having fun so enjoy the compilation and expect more like this in the future.

Willie Colon & Ruben Blades - The Last Fight (1982)

01 - Yo Puedo Vivir Del Amor
02 - Andanza
03 - Cimarron
04 - What Happened
05 - Venganza
06 - Y Tu Abuela
A movie soundtrack. This sounds like it was cut in a weekend: the two new Blades compositions are tossoffs, and the rest is rearrangements of standards. By this point Blades was seeking to complete his Fania contract as rapidly as possible. But Colón's band is so good even the most mediocre material holds your interest, and Blades' "What Happened" is amusing. (DBW)

For their first major assignment, they attempt to thwart a corrupt businessman at odds with Nick over property development.
