Bloodstone provided the score to this odd mid-seventies movie. The soundtrack is relatively easy to find and showcases a very strange mix of cover versions and original tracks in a variety of musical styles. The outstanding track from a funk perspective is a great, uptempo version of 'Money (That's What I Want)' that sounds similar to Tower Of Power's early funk material. Nice movie dialogue and Jack Davis cover art, too.
