Finally, a long sought out Blaxploitation film has been released on Blu Ray/DVD, "Catch My Soul" (1973). This film, starring Richie Havens as Othello and Lance LeGault as Iago, is based on Shakespeare's play, "Othello", which writer Jack Good delivers a unique perspective of the play. "Catch My Soul" implements a religious perspective with Othello as a Preacher and Iago as Satan. Iago spends majority of his time seducing Cassio (Tony Joe White) and tricking Othello into believing Desedoma (Season Hubly) is being unfaithful.  All throughout the film, musical cuts exemplify scenes that translate to a very groovy spirit that keeps you glued to the film. The soundtrack can be found here, which is fan made by Blaxploitation Pride.  The official release (vinyl only) can be found at discogs. This film is highly recommend and can be purchased at Amazon. Please support the release as these type of rarities because they may become more prevalent in the future.

Grady Tate [featuring Gary McFarland Orchestra] - Slaves (1969)

From the obscure Blaxploitation film, "Slaves" (1969) featuring Ossie Davis and Dionne Warwick, this soundtrack offers us very little to none of that Blaxplotiation sound we are accustom to hearing. Nevertheless, it's necessary to have in the collection. Driven by harmonic and country sounds that one could say is fitting for a film like "Slaves"; this soundtrack does deliver for it purpose. Enjoy.

A1. Slaves    
A2. Slaves    
A3. Meetin' House    
A4. Black Lullabye    
A5. Another Mornin'

Luchi De Jesus & Holland/Dozier/Holland - Detroit 9000 [OST] (1973)

Another righteous soundtrack done by the legendary Luchi De Jesus. This soundtrack features the melodies that we've been accustom to hearing from De Jesus, such as the, "Wah-Wah" screaming guitar in "Friday Foster" and "Black Belt Jones."  It has been said that there is a Capital Hi-Cue Reel 114 featuring cuts from De Jesus in released '77. This rare library record may potentially contain some recordings for "Detroit 9000". While our fan based custom made soundtracks are great, we would really like to get our hand on authentic material!

Tom Scott and the L.A. Express - Uptown Saturday Night [OST] (1974)

Another unofficial release, brought to you by the brothers of Blax-Pride. In this post, we feature the soundtrack to "Uptown Saturday Night" by Tom Scott and L.A. Express, also featuring a 7" version of "Uptown Saturday Night" theme sung by Bill Harris. It is unfortunate that there was never an official soundtrack release of this film. Considering how incredible "Let's Do It Again" by Curtis Mayfield and the Staple Singers, and "A Piece of the Action", by Curtis Mayfield and Mavis Staples; Uptown Saturday would have delivered a very similar vibe (minus the production of Curtis Mayfield, which automatically puts it 3rd best to the other two soundtracks). But who's comparing?
