Dolemite returns, every bit as raw as on his debut – making for another funky feather in the cap of Rudy Ray Moore during the 70s! The album begins with the extended "Return Of Dolemite" piece – one that's almost a manifesto for Rudy's way of life at the time – and the set then follows with some equally great numbers that benefit strongly from backings by the Fillmore St Soul Rebellion, who provided music on other great Rudy Ray Moore albums of the time! The music really makes some of these cuts great – shifting the mood nicely, and throwing in a hip party groove under Rudy's raunchy comedy routines. The set also features the wild "Grunts & Groans Of Love" – plus "Pimpin Roc", "Return of Dolemite", "Thin Thin Dime", and "Rotadius". (Non-gatefold pressing. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track five. Cover has a small split on the top seam and a few light stains.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!
