Donald Byrd and The Blackbyrds entered the blaxploitation soundtrack arena fairly late in the day with this LP for Fantasy Records. The film's subject matter is not standard blaxploitation fare, being a socially-aware story about a young basketball player. The album has its moments, a great theme is particularly notable along with some strong Blackbyrds-style jazz-funk instrumentals, but it's not up to the standard of their early studio LPs.
