This soundtrack was written by the artist behind the musical 'Hair', Galt McDermot. An early and entertaining entry into 1970s black cinema, the album is equally rewarding and slightly tongue-in-cheek. There are some great groovy vocal numbers - the theme is noteworthy - and a few good instrumentals.

I love the title track for this movie. If only I could get an mp3 of it...

The film's much more lightweight than Himes's source material but still very enjoyable.
