Various Artist - Theme Music, Volume 1

Here are a collection of opening title and theme music from Blaxploitation films. Many of these tracks have not been officially released. I will be doing several compilations, so I proudly present volume 1. There are several funky and soulful cuts, which represents the mood of blaxploitation. Opening titles and themes from Blaxploitation films are always a joy to listen to. They usually set the film up nicely and many times the songs are better than the film itself.

01. High Horse [Theme From Brotherhood of Death] - Revelation
02. Hit Man (What You Gonna Do) - H.B. Barnum
03. Emma Mae - Keisa Brown
04. Top of the Heap [Theme] - J.J. Johnson
05. Buck and the Preacher [Theme] - Benny Carter
06. Bus Ride [Main Title Theme from, Black Mama, White Mama] - Harry Betts
07. Coonskin Opening Theme - Scatman Crothers
08. Force Four [Theme] - Life, U.S.A.
09. Black Gunn Opening Theme - Tony Osborne
10. Black Samson [Theme] - Allen Toussaint
11. Tell My Story [Theme From The Legend of Nigger Charley] - Charlie Smalls
12. The Slams [Opening Title Theme] - Luther Henderson
