Grant Green - The Final Comedown (1972)

1. Past, Present And Future
2. The Final Comedown
3. Father's Lament
4. Fountain Scene

6. Slight Fear And Terror

The jazz label Blue Note issued this one and only soundtrack from Grant Green in 1972 to accompany an obscure blaxploitation movie. The soundtrack sees Green obviously out of place trying to solo over the top of genre blaxploitation funk. One of the lesser known blaxploitation LPs, not easy to find, but worth considering for "The Battle".
