Can You Dig It? The Music and Politics of Black Action Films 1969-75

Not sure where the politics come in...maybe inside 100 page booklet supplied by impeccable compilers down Soul Jazz way. Do expect pimps, prostitutes, petty hoods, pushermen n social conscience do gooders exhorting brothas n sistas to unite...oh n lest we forget, African American vampires. Post-civil rights n pre-mainstream soon to come with the..ahem...watered down likes of Car Wash n high octane doing it for da black n white folks Richard Pryor (man on fire, boom boom). Betimes, this really isn absolutely stunning collection.
