Brother On The Run

LP (Item 44004) Perception, 1973 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

An incredible funky soundtrack – one of the best of the blacksploitation generation, and one of the rarest too! Johnny Pate did the orchestrations for this excellent lost film, and he brought the same sort of energy to it that he did with his soundtrack for Shaft In Africa. There's some masterfully funky tracks that are very tightly arranged – grooving hard with some nice "chase" themes, and slowing down in a few sexier, more soulful numbers. Adam Wade sang the vocals to "Brother On The Run" – perhaps the catchiest of all soundtrack tunes from the time – and other titles include "Brother", "Auto Chase", "Car Bumps", "Soulful Brother On The Run", and "Ms. Johnson's Sex Scene".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
