Shaft's Big Score Gordon Parks MGM ISE 36, 1972
Shaft's Big Score album cover

Film director Gordon Parks was responsible for scoring this, the second of the Shaft movies. He commented that the music had to be completed in two weeks. It shows. In most cases a weak imitation of the original Shaft score, there are some vocal tracks by O.C. Smith and a long chase scene that takes up all of the second side of the album. The LP has its moments, but is generally inconsistent. Great cover painting, though.

Overall Rating: 3
