Funky Film Soundtracks #4

As we have been delving into the funky soundtracks of 7T's
blaxploitation movies on here, word reaches mytea@om that the UK's Soul Jazz records massive will soon release a double CD/vinyl compilation titled Can You Dig it? "The Music and Politics of Black Action Films 1969-75" . Will post something about it later, but here we continue with the classic kung-fu movie starring bad-boy Jim 'Enter The Dragon' Kelly and Gloria Hendry.

This soundtrack is really one you should try and obtain a copy of, It has loads of amazing dialogue and fight sound effects woven into the funky instrumentals - The killer main theme track featured here with the sound effects version that always brings a smile to my face. A perfect soundtrack in my opinon!

Dennis Coffey The funky guitar genius composed and conducted the soundtrack alongside Luchi De Jesus. Originally released on the Weintraub-Heller label 1974.
