Funky Film Soundtracks # 3

Digging into the soundtrack crates again and coming up with some quality pimping soul from the man Edwin Starr. The US soul singer who had lived in the UK since around the time of this release until his passing in 2003 and is still a legend on the Northern Soul scene there. This track lifted from "Hell Up In Harlem" OST released on Motown records in 1973, "Easin`in" is a finger snappin`, infectious bad arse bass slappin`, stormer of a track! It was sampled by Tone Loc on his track "Loc`d After Dark" . Apparently James Brown was first asked to do the composition for this film, following on from his work on the previous "Black Caesar", but it was rejected, which led JB to release it as that Legendary LP "The PayBack"......Enjoy!
