Man From Hong Kong, The Noel Quinlan Overseas Records SUX-1-V, 1977
Man From Hong Kong, The album cover

Here's the deal with this album. If you don't like slightly weird, cult B-movie soundtracks then this LP is not for you. However, if you like your funk a little twisted, with plenty of samples, scenes from the movie, a little disco and a little rock then this is definitely up your street. Not a dancefloor record, there are a couple of very respectable if a little cheesy funk numbers, plus two superb funky synth and keyboards cuts which beg to be sampled. We've also got a lounge-style easy flute groover and some chunky cheesy rock plus the awful disco of Jigsaw's minor hit Sky High. All in all, a perfect Saturday afternoon late 70s LP from a long-forgotten George Lazenby movie. Props to the magnificent Jonny Trunk for a tip-off on this hard-to-find, lost gem.

Overall Rating: 4
