Allen Toussaint - Black Samson (1974)


"Black Samson" is another one of those, "why on earth did they not release a soundtrack for this film" type of movie. Most of the music was done by Allen Toussaint with guest features from The Meters and Willie West. This custom made OST features more dialog (great for sound bites for producers) with faint music in the background. Other than the theme song and ending credits, we are some what left with only a taste of what this soundtrack could sound like if there was an official release. Nevertheless, we at Blaxploitation Pride felt it was necessary to highlight this film and it's music. Artwork and soundtrack was done by BP's own, Funkback. Thanks brother!
