He's slick. He's hard. He's bad... and that's good for LIALEH.
The movie (also know as "The Black Deep Throat") is about a girl named
Lialeh who wants to make it as a soul singer. Legendary drummer Bernard
"Pretty" Purdie composed, produced and performed Lialeh's score, while
between projects with Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, The Last Poets,
The Rolling Stones, James Brown.
Lialeh is a hard-fisted super action, sexy adult film. Enter Arlos
world. He's doing a show and Lialeh wants the lead role. Jennifer Leigh,
as Lialeh, is a hot beautiful and erotic woman. She knows what she
wants and has all the right moves to make it happen. Arlo, played by
Lawrence Pertillah, is the "Shaft" of XXX movies. Don't miss the very
first black XXX film! This is the one that broke the ice for future
black XXX movies. A true collector's item.

Nice post! I was listening to the soundtrack for this flick last weekend and remember thinking how I'd always heard about the film but never had the chance to see it. Thanks for making it possible as always.

Yeah well, the movie's not that great. Compared to the fabulous soundtrack, it's a bit of disapointing but hey,let's say it's a nice retro ponr movie.
