Blaxploitation.com
One-time Shirley Bassey arranger Johnny Harris presents two monstrous breakbeat funk tracks from the movie 'Fragments Of Fear' on this, the first of his two solo LPs. For those readers not familiar with the classic track 'Stepping Stones', just buy it. A danced-up remix was featured in a Levi's jeans 'kung fu' commercial a short while. The main theme to Fragments Of Fear is a slower, big beat funk track with a great riff. Other tracks on the album feature the same huge rhythm section, as do Shirley Bassey's early 1970s albums on UA: they are well worth a listen, although much more 'lounge' in style and content. This album contains some INDISPENSIBLE soundtrack funk. Do NOT overlook it. Incidentally, does anyone know what Johnny Harris is doing now? We'd love to hear?

Blaxploitation.com
schifrin's entry into the mainstream blaxploitation idiom. A great soundtrack; one of the classic 1970's scores. The main theme features a screaming wah and kung-fu sound effects while the rest of the album showcases some fine oriental-style funk and guitar work. Check out "Sampans" and watch the film at the same time - the music becomes more funky when Jim Kelly appears on the screen!

11. Call Me Mr. Tibbs (End Title)

Blaxploitation.com
This album features the massive hit theme from Quincy Jones, covers of which can be found on almost every 1970's tribute album. It's a superb crime funk jam, driven by organ and keyboard and backed up by a huge brass section. "Fat Poppadaddy" is a strong track too - find it for the theme alone.

Barry DeVorzon - The Warriors (1979)

1. Theme from The Warriors - Barry de Vorzon

8. Baseball Furies Chase - Barry de Vorzon
9. You're Movin' Too Slow - John Vastano
10. Last of an Ancient Breed - Desmond Child



Blaxploitation.com
Barry DeVorzon enlisted the help of Mandrill amongst others for the soundtrack to a gritty street gang movie from 1979. Expect a rocked-up, late 70s funk score with big analogue synth over the top of a mix of latin and rock grooves. The album features several poor vocal numbers but contains a good instrumental theme, driving and insistent. Many of the other tracks are sparse, guitar-led late 70s funk with strong bass. The main theme's melody is reprised throughout the score.

16. End Theme [MC/M16]
17. House Mix [MC/M17]


Blaxploitation.com
One of Roy Budd's hardest to find scores, this one was only issued on a 45 in France. The main theme is a midtempo, menacing orchestral theme without too much in the way of drums so it ain't that funky. Good for sampling though. The flip is an accordion piece. One for completists and samplers.

11. End Title (vocal: Geraldine Janes, bass: Ray Brown, guitar: Arthur Adams)

Blaxploitation.com
A fairly obscure Quincy Jones score to a film featuring Julie Christie. This album has a similar feel to the The Italian Job and borrows a number of rhythmic motifs from that LP. The best track is the slow groove number "Main Squeeze", containing some great percussion and keyboard work.
