Michael Masser - The Greatest (1977) [Featuring George Benson and Mandrill]

1. The Greatest Love Of All - George Benson
2. I Always Knew I Had It In Me
3. Ali's Theme - Michael Masser
4. Ali Bombaye I - Mandrill & Michael Masser
5. Ali Bombaye II - Mandril & Michael Masser
6. The Greatest Love Of All - George Benson (Alt.)
7. Variations On Theme - Michael Masser
8. I Always Knew I Had It In Me - George Benson (Alt.)

"The Greatest Love of All" and "I Always Knew I Had It In Me" are powerful examples of inspirational songs at their best. These songs match perfectly with the life of Muhammed Ali, the subject of the movie that this soundrack was created for. These songs are timeless. You could store them in your "classics" collection.

Wow!!! I've been waiting a long long time for this! A real good movie too, starring the man himself in great shape. George sings and plays like he's never done before. It preshadow's his decent into schmalz tho' with the theme song tho'.
