Cross And The Switchblade, The Ralph Carmichael Light LS-5550-LP, 1970
Cross And The Switchblade, The album cover

The tiny religious label, Light, based in Waco, Texas released Ralph Carmichael's great funk score to the Pat Boone movie about a man bringing religion to the ghetto. While some of the music is standard period pop or religious in nature, the theme and several other instrumentals showcase a large group playing great, driving funk. Don't miss the insane 'Addict's Psalm' (Pat Boone speaking passages from the scriptures over a huge funk breakbeat) or 'Rumble', a great chase-style funk instrumental. Often overlooked and strongly recommended.

Overall Rating: 4
