No Way Back Dells, The Mercury SRM-1-1084, 1976
No Way Back album cover

One of the lesser-known blaxploitation scores, this album features three tracks from the Fred Williamson (as Jesse Crowder) movie No Way Back. Leaving the rest of the album aside (which is pretty good in a late 70s funk with a heavy dose of harmony soul way), the blax cuts on here are good. A nice hard funk theme with a heavy bassline and persistent riff start the second side, then a straightforward soulful love theme, and finally a great funky instrumental to finish the selection. Smooth mid-late 70s funk in style, but with a hard edge that's well worth exploring.

Overall Rating: 4
