OK, OK, so everyone knows about this one, as there must be at least six thousand different versions of this LP out there. This one's the movie version soundtrack, updated a little for the late 70s. What does that mean? Well, you get some really smoking jazz-funk versions of the acknowledged classics. Wait 'til you hear the wicked version of Aquarius on here! Also check 3-5-0-0 for another cheeky funk tune. Plenty of good disco and funk on here, pity about the vocals, but still good, and always cheap (especially for a 2-LP set).
