The Best Of Blaxploitation - Disc One

Year of Release: 1998
Label: Global TV
Genre: Rhythm and Blues, Soul, Funk

Blaxploitation is a film genre that began in the 1970s with films like "Shaft" and "Superfly" that featured a primarily black cast, and featured funk and soul soundtracks. Huge afros, drug dealers, pimps and hookers, dirty double-crossers, street fighters, guns and fast cars fueled the action of these magnificent crime classsics. This is only volume one of this three CD set. I will follow up with the other two volumes shortly.

3. Jungle Boogie - Kool & the Gang
4. "T" Plays It Cool - Marvin Gaye
5. Freddie's Dead - Curtis Mayfield

I've actually been intending to pick up some blaxpoitation soundtracks for some time now. I suppose I don't have an excuse not to grab this. I'm looking forward to seeing the contents of the other two discs also.
