New York City Band Harold Wheeler AIR (American International) AILP 3002, 1979
New York City Band album cover

Here's an obscure late 70s soundtrack, from an equally obscure Joey Travolta gang movie put out by AIP in 1979. The music is surprisingly good, courtesy of jobbing jazzer Harold Wheeler - it's tight and funky. The album also includes backing vocals by a certain Luther Van Dross [sic]. The first side of the LP is basic genre disco music, but the second side is much tighter, with a range of funk genres and tempos. Good stuff - the theme's a dancefloor cracker.

Overall Rating: 4

Track listing:

Loving you | Bo Diddley | Got to have your body | Ride that wave | New York city band | Summertime | Sunnyside |
