Album Description
Available in:
.1996 compilation on Global TV featuring urban hits of the'70s from Grover Washington Jr., Donny Hathaway, CurtisMayfield, James Brown, Billy Cobham, Isaac Hayes, QuincyJones, Bootsy Collins, Courtney Pine, Sly Stone and more!24 tracks total. Double jewelcase. This title of this generous two-CD anthology is a bit of a misnomer: While it includes several blaxploitation film themes, it is much more than just a strict genre compilation. Although there are the expected soundtrack picks like "Shaft" by Isaac Hayes and "Superfly" by Curtis Mayfield, this album also includes plenty of non-soundtrack items to create a convincing urban atmosphere. The producers wisely layer in some interesting obscurities along with the obvious choices, and this helps to keep things fresh and interesting. Some of the unexpected highlights in the soul arena include Esther Phillips' intense but controlled reading of the Gil Scott-Heron message song "Home Is Where the Hatred Is" and Bootsy Collins' "I'd Rather Be With You," a lovely ballad that reins in his tendency for cartoon wackiness to create a moody and genuinely romantic atmosphere.
