Wildcat Women a.k.a. Black Lolita (Anaglyph 3D) (1975)










Starring:

  • Yolanda Love
  • Ed Cheatwood
  • Susan Ayers
  • Joey Ginza
IMDB.com
To paraphrase Rod Serling..."Picture if you will, a 70's film with funk music, Blaxploitation elements, soft-core porn, and martial arts." Sounds like it should be a winner, pity that it wasn't. Hammy martial arts fighting that looked like out-takes from a low budget Hong Kong turkey. Typical gangster posturing. The music wasn't bad. But it WAS monotonous eventually. And the sex scenes did seem real. They were filmed 'soft' though. This is NOT a hard X. A simple case of too many cooks (in this case, plot elements) spoiling the broth. Watchable, yes. But mostly due to its rarity.

Mike Vickers - Dracula A.D. (1972)


moviegrooves.com
Another classic Hammer Horror soundtrack finally crawls from its dark, damp resting place; it's the first ever CD release of Mike Vickers' Dracula A.D. 1972 soundtrack - the music from the 1972 movie starring Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Christopher Neame, Stephanie Beacham and Caroline Munro.

For the Dracula A.D. 1972 soundtrack, Hammer's music director, Philip Martell, chose to go in a different direction with the music, seeking a more modern sound to go along with the film's modern approach and so Mike Vickers was brought in to compose the music for the film. Vickers had a strong background as an arranger and composer in the early 1960s, and played guitar and saxophone for the Manfred Mann group during its early period. Vickers' music for the film is a mixture of orchestral acoustics with electronic instruments, incorporating modernistic, pop-jazz styled rhythms, Gothic tonalities with snare drum, organ and cymbals, reworked with horns, saxophone, bongos and drumkit. In addition to the score, the film features two songs by the American pop band, Stoneground, and atonal electroacoustic music composed by electronic music pioneer David Vorhaus for the black mass sequence.

This CD presents the original Dracula A.D. 1972 soundtrack in film order, along with the two songs by Stoneground as bonus tracks.

This release is a limited edition of 1500 units.

Big Pimp Jones - Bad Bad Jimmy Ruckus (2009)



traxsource.com
The funky soundtrack to the 'cult' blaxploitation movie that has never been released -Who knew a movie that never even made it to theatres could create such a buzz? By buzz, we mean a bidding war resulting in the highest ending auction amount on ebay, ever (at the time). By buzz, we mean a 7,000 final auction price. By buzz, we mean a winning bidder who chose to remain anonymous (but who, if you believe the rumours is none other than Quentin Tarantino). By buzz, we mean an ever-moving theatrical release date that continues to get delayed due to the controversial nature of the content (which again, if you believe the rumours, includes a body count in the hundreds, a seven minute sexcene, and a final scene where the bad guy's skull gets punched clean out of his head). That's the kind of buzz we mean. Will we ever get to see this film? Of that we can't be sure, but what we can be sure of is that you hold in your hands the soundtrack to this flick, and that it is one bad mutha. Soundtracks like this are why we dig for records - they're what keep us going when hours, days, even months haven't borne fruit, they're the things that make the travels worth it. This is one of those records that make you do a sextuple-take because you can't believe what you just found: the soundtrack to a cult legend movie that hasn't been released for 35 years and counting. And what a soundtrack it is! Drums all over the place, bass so thick you can spread it on toast and other instrumentation that adds up to a serious dose of fownk. And not only are the tunes good, but the arrangement of it all as well - who knew people used clips of dialogue like this on soundtracks back in the day? Until the movie gets released, if it ever gets released, we can at least enjoy the music from the soundtrack and the bits of dialogue that give us sparse hints about the film. Because if the film is like the soundtrack, it is going to be one bad, bad experience.

Roberta Flack - Bustin' Loose (1981)



dustygroove.com
Certainly one of the lesser sorts of soul soundtracks that you'll find, and an easily overlooked Roberta Flack record consisting of tracks for this low-budget comedy with Cicely Tyson and Richard Pryor. The music's mostly in an electric modern soul vein -- even the instrumental bits -- and arrangements are by Barry Miles, Marcus Miller, Buddy Williams, and Roberta herself -- who also produced the album. Titles include "Love (Always Commands)", "Lovin You (Is Such An Easy Thing To Do)", "Rollin On", "Qual E Malindrinho", and "Hittin Me Where It Hurts".

01 Lovin' You (Is Such An Easy Thang To Do)
02 Rollin' On
03 You Stopped Loving Me
04 Just When I Needed You
05 Qual E Malindrinho (Why Are You So Bad)
06 Love (Always Commands)
07 Children's Song
08 Ballad For D
09 Hittin' Me Where It Hurts

Gordon Parks - The Learning Tree (1970)



blaxploitation.com
One for completists only, this score from Gordon Parks is a pretty tired affair, typically dated 1960s soundtrack music with only one beaty track, a pastiche jazz piece with nice drums spoiled by a bad vocal.

01 - Main Title
02 - The Storm To Calm
03 - Bluebird
04 - The Swimming Hole
05 - Concerto (Arcella's Theme)
06 - Birthday Present
07 - Chorale (The Learning Tree)
08 - Poor Tuck
09 - Questions & Answers
10 - My Baby's Gone (feat. Jimmy Rushing)

undergroundhiphop.com
Available for the first time ever on any format! The Human Tornado Original Motion Picture soundtrack transfered from the original master tapes and packaged in a beautiful thick stock vintage 'paste-on' style sleeve with obi strip. Produced by T. Toney and Rudy Ray Moore himself.

Once again the name Rudy Ray Moore means action! In this sequel to the cult smash Dolemite, we find our hero on the run from a redneck sheriff who has caught Dolemite messin' with his woman. He and his posse (including a young Ernie Hudson) dodge the sheriff and his bullets in a high-speed chase that takes them to L.A. Upon Dolemite's arrival, he learns that Queen Bee (Lady Reed) and her Kung Fu Girls have been pushed out of the nightclub business by a ruthless competitor who has ties to the Mob. With two of the girls held hostage, the Queen and her bees are forced into slavery for their nemesis.

Enter Dolemite! Following a scene described by Rudy Ray himself as "sensational and sexsational," Dolemite gets the lowdown on the gang's hideout. It's highspeed kung fu Dolemite-style as the rat soup eatin' motherf***ers get their collective ass kicked. But the redeneck sheriff is still hot on Dolemite's trail - can even a Human Tornado fight two battles at once?

Known as the 'King of the Party Records', Rudy Ray Moore is famous for his special brand of 'blue' humor based largely on traditional ghetto folklore that has been passed down through several generations. His character Dolemite made the transition to motion pictures in the hugely successful film of the same name.
