Very obscure record made by the enigmatic Leo Gooden, a politician and night club owner from East St. Louis who made a few records on his own tiny LG label.

A totally excellent soundtrack! This is one of the maddest we've heard from the 70s – with a baroque mix of wah wah funk and sophisticated orchestrations, very much in the mode of work by David Axelrod or some of the backings heard on Serge Gainsbourg's best records. No surprise it's ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
