Hell Up In Harlem Edwin Starr Motown M 802, 1973
Hell Up In Harlem album cover

Originally due to be scored by James Brown using material from what later became his 'The Payback' LP, this soundtrack by Fonce Mizell and Freddie Perren nevertheless contains some great funk tracks. Edwin Starr is in fine form on the slowburn conga-lead 'Easin' In', while the tight funk band can be heard to full effect on the instrumental 'Runnin'. A consistently good album with several noteable tracks.

Overall Rating: 4
