Cotton Comes To Harlem Galt McDermot United Artists UA?????, 1970
Cotton Comes To Harlem album cover

This soundtrack was written by the artist behind the musical 'Hair', Galt McDermot. An early and entertaining entry into 1970s black cinema, the album is equally rewarding and slightly tongue-in-cheek. There are some great groovy vocal numbers - the theme is noteworthy - and a few good instrumentals.

Overall Rating: 4
