Comment:

Blaxploitation films rolled off the '70s assembly line like an endless convoy of Cadillac Fleetwoods: [i]Shaft[/i], [i]Superfly[/i], [i]Black Caesar[/i], [i]Coffy[/i], [i]Cleopatra Jones[/i], [i]Foxy Brown[/i], [i]Willie Dynamite[/i]. Peacock-plumed and leather-clad men of action and stiletto-heeled, cleavage-revealing women of passion targeted one villain with a Scud missile's ruthless efficiency: the Man — almost without exception a white, obese, cigar-smoking pillar of evil whose three-piece polyester suit fit like a sausage casing. For many of these B-grade cinematic bonbons, the soundtrack far outclassed the film (and in the case of [i]Superfly[/i], even [i]outgrossed[/i] the film). And while the movies are frequently dispatched to the guilty pleasure pile, the music that gave them life reaches out like Blacula from the coffin to grab your ears and leave an indelible mark on your musical psyche. We've gathered some of the genre's classics for your enjoyment . . . but you'll have to supply the popcorn.
