$9.99Out Of Stock
A monster! Foxy Brown is Willie Hutch's magnificent soundtrack for Foxy Brown – a Pam Grier blacksploitation film from the early 70s – and it's pure genius all the way through, a record filled with some of the best funky soundtrack cuts of the era!

With the amazing "Fight The Power" by Public Enemy. The rest of the album's a real mish mash of other stuff, mostly R&B, including "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Can't Stand It" by Steel ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
