Ayers, Roy – Coffy Soundtrack – Used LP

Regular price $ 26.00 $ 0.00

Still sealed. 

Polydor PD 5048, 239 1077. 

Originally issued in 1973.  This has a price tag from the store Vintage Vinyl with "98" above price, which may mean 1998, which suggests pre-1998 issue. 

Review by A blaxploitation masterpiece on par with Curtis Mayfield's Superfly and Isaac Hayes' Shaft, Roy Ayers' soundtrack for the 1973 Pam Grier vehicle Coffy remains one of the most intriguing and evocative film scores of its era or any other. Ayers' signature vibes create atmospheres and textures quite distinct from your average blaxploitation effort, embracing both heavy, tripped-out funk ("Brawling Broads") and vividly nuanced soul-jazz ("Aragon"). The vocal numbers are no less impressive, in particular the rapturous opening cut, "Coffy Is the Color." Richly cinematic grooves, as inventive and cohesive as any of Ayers' vintage Ubiquity LPs. Highly recommended.

 

Released May 1973
Recorded April 5, 1973 – April 8, 1973
