Hitter, The Garfeel Ruff Capitol SW-11920, 1978
Hitter, The album cover

Ron 'Superfly' O'Neal starred in this late obscure, depressing blaxploitation film from 1978 about a failed bare knuckle fighter and hustler. The music has a very well-produced, clean sound and features tracks from Raul Da Souza alongside the original film music from Garfeel Ruff. The originals are good late 70's funk, generally slow tempo with deep bass and a strong horn section. This album can be found fairly easily, invariably still sealed and quite cheap, so obtain a copy if you can.

Overall Rating: 3
