Cotton Comes To Harlem

(reissue)
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 12

A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – and others have lyrics sung by George Tipton, Sakinah, Leta Galloway, and Denise Dillpena, mostly in a early 70s pop soul sort of mode. The instrumentals are actually the best bits, though – with those odd little rhythms that Galt could hit when he really wanted to! Titles include "Man In Distress", "Harlem Medley", "Black Enough", "Stockyard", "Deke", "Ed & Digger", "Coffin Ed & Gravedigger", and "Harlem By Day".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Really dark sounds from Zdenk Liska – eerie wordless vocals, dark string passages, and other spooky elements – all served up on short tracks that work together almost like some haunted elegy in music – stepping gently from verse to verse with a new sense of exposition at each turn! ...
