James Brown: Black Caesar Soundtrack (1973)

The entire soundtrack for the classic blaxpoitation film (which I admit I have not seen) is by James Brown. And it's great.

Standout tracks in no particular order:

  • 8. Mama's Dead
  • 1. Down And Out In New York City: if you listen to the rapper Prodigy you will remember this, and probably some other samples from the album, on his 2007 mixtape Return of the Mac
  • 11. Like It Was: Brown gets really awesome near the end of the track, hard to explain just hear him singing the music using his vocals and tongue
  • 5. The Boss: one of the most recognizable James Brown tracks ever
The whole album is great though, really.
