The RZA's fine second phase career as a top notch soundtrack maestro continues with Afro Samurai – the music for the anime/blacksploitation hybrid starring Samuel L Jackson – and a varied batch of tracks that's really a lot more than the typical Ghost Dog/early Wu Tang style beats you might be expecting! Naturally, RZA does bring plenty of martial arts style and soul beat instrumentals, but there are also a lot of vocal cuts – which run the gamut from raw freestyle-like bits to atmospheric r&b. GZA drops in, as do pioneers Big Daddy Kane and Q-Tip! Titles include "Afro Theme" with rhymes by RZA, "Certified Samurai" feat Talib Kweli, Lil Free & Suga Bang, "Just A Little Dude" feat Q-Tip & Free Murder, "Oh" and "The Walk" feat Stone Mecca, "Cameo Afro" feat Big Daddy Kane, GZA & Suga Bang, "Take Sword Pt 1" with RZA & Berretta 9 and more vocal tracks, plus the instrumentals "Afro Intro", "Afro's Father Fight", "The Empty 7 Theme", "Afro Samurai Theme (First Part and Second Part)" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Linear Labs, 2014. New Copy
A great pairing of Bay Area hip hop legends Souls Of Mischief and producer-composer Adrian Younge – akin to the cinematic hip hop funk productions by Younge for Ghostface Killah and others – but it's also the tightest, most focused work we've heard from the Souls in a while!

Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
Lord Quas' booming, mad-blunted hip hop – an even more sprawling, surreal ride than the Unseen LP!

Right Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ...

Easy Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)

Kusini
Delta Sigma Theta, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic bit of rare funk from Manu Dibango – originally scored for a film that starred Greg Morris, Ruby Dee, and Ossie Davis – but every bit as funky as Manu's own work of the time! The tunes are all very firmly in the best style of his earliest work of the 70s, with loads of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Surf Nazis Must Die
Strange Disc, 1987. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The first-ever commercial release of the soundtrack to this great bit of 80s horror schlock – a film that would have been right at home in the drive-in scene of the 70s, but which was nearly lost a decade later! Jon McCallum's music is nice and spooky – lots of the cool keyboards and ... LP, Vinyl record album
