Comment:

With its chattering guitars, conga rhythms, and staccato strings, "Theme of Foxy Brown" rips right into hyperdrive while Willie Hutch's grab-you-by-the-throat tenor waxes poetic about the film's lead, played by Miss Blaxploitation herself, Pam Grier. Over Johnny Pate's splashy, brassy, big band arrangement for the theme to [i]Brother on the Run[/i], Adam Wade's hickory-smoked baritone half-chides, half-warns lead character Brother about the ticking time bomb lurking in his immediate future. And speaking of time, fans of Booker T. & The MG's will instantly recognize "Tank's Lament" from the movie [i]Uptight[/i], because the tune is a slowed down, lounged up version of their Top 10 hit "Time Is Tight." But don't stop here; part of the joy of blaxploitation is discovering that even a regrettable movie may conceal a kernel of musical genius within.
