Claudine – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 9495) Buddah, 1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space for the setting of the film – a mixture of some of the mellower tracks that Gladys' always sparkles on, mixed with some badder-stepping numbers that further deepen the groove – and which has kept the album alive over the years, thanks to some key hip hop samples. Tracks include the sublime "The Makings Of You", plus "Mr Welfare Man", "To Be Invisible", "Claudine Theme", "On and On", and "Hold On". (Cover has a cutout hole, a few creases, and tape on the spine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Black Motion Picture Experience
Buddah, 1973. Near Mint-
A cover record – but a great one! Unlike some of the Pickwick knock-off albums from the time, this blacksploitation effort by Cecil Holmes is top-shelf all the way – as Cecil's one of the best funky bandleaders of the early 70s.

Buddah, 1973. Very Good+
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1970. Very Good-
A nice one from the Five Stairsteps – and even if the cover has them looking like a bunch of gangsters, the music's still sweet sweet soul, with a good Chicago groove! The band are clearly trying to grow up here – dropping the "five" from their name, and trying to look all ... LP, Vinyl record album
