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!
