Watermelon Man Melvin Van Peebles Beverly Hills BHS 26, 1970
Watermelon Man album cover

This soundtrack is taken from the film that established Van Peebles' Hollywood career. A white bigot wakes up one day to discover he is black and experiences life in America in the late 1960s from a black perspective. The music mixes jazz and soul with a heavy hint of funk. Check out 'Love, That's America' for a nice example of a brass-heavy loose boogie.

Overall Rating: 3
