Recently while trawling through the soundtrack department at Amoeba I came upon this gem. I picked it up new for about nine bucks out of some hazily remembered memory of an incredible review (generally when I do this it is a 50/50 toss up as to whether it will suck or not). This time the odds played in my favor.
The Mack soundtrack is a great album all the way through. There are some highlights as in the hit "The Brother's Gonna Work it Out" but it is remarkably consistant throughout.
Check out the hit and pick up the album. This is a prime example of the long tail at work.
Willie Hutch - Brother's Gonna Work it Out
The 70s become a more and more interesting decade for the study of music, politics, and culture as time goes on. I hope its not just cause I am stuck in some kind of nostalgia trip.
