Melinda Jerry Butler Pride PRD 0006ST, 1972
Melinda album cover

Jerry Butler teams up with Jerry Peters for this fine soundtrack album to accompany an obscure but well-respected blaxploitation movie. One of the better psychedelic funk scores, similar in style to The Dynamite Brothers, this album features some great funk keyboard work and a classic seven-minute funk jam theme. The sound is small-group funk, with a loose, raw edge and Fender Rhodes high in the mix.

Overall Rating: 4
