Hell Up In Harlem (1973)
Edwin Starr! What on earth's he good for? Composing soundtracks to blaxploitation flicks, that's what! Listen to this!
Across 110th Street (1972)
Most people think this is the theme tune to 'Jackie Brown'. We know better.
The Godfather of Soul, the hardest working man in show business, James Brown himself, knocked together this score for Larry Cohen's black gangster epic.
The Harder They Come (1972)
Trouble Man (1972)
Saturday Night Fever (1977)
If I'm not mistaken, this is still the biggest selling soundtrack album of all time. It's certainly one of the funkiest.
This movie about the music biz was a massive flop but it does feature a soundtrack from funk legends Earth, Wind & Fire.
