Of Rudy Ray Moore's album output, this soundtrack is one of the easier LPs to obtain. It's a good album, mixing funk and jazz in equal measures, but the jazz is second-rate and the funk is not consistent. There are few tracks and most are pressed in two versions, vocal and instrumental. The best track is the outstanding funk instrumental 'Zombie March', featuring a great horn riff over a fat breakbeat.
