Brother On The Run Johnny Pate

A fine and very rare Perception LP from some-time Impressions arranger Johnny Pate, also responsible for the classic ‘Shaft In Africa’. While this album is not as strong as the Shaft LP, it features a beautiful funky theme sung by Adam Wade and a number of strong funk instrumentals. This album obviously influenced a great many Acid Jazz artists.

Madame Claude

A great 70s soundtrack from Serge Gainsbourg — funky, electric, and his most dynamic work ever for the screen — a set that’s almost in the territory of some of the Italian police films from the same time! A good number of tracks here rely strongly on funky drums, slinky keyboards, and bubbling basslines — strutting out with a nice cop show sort of approach to funk — and although Jane Birkin sings on one number, the rest of the score is instrumental — making for a further display of Serge’s mighty talents in the 70s. Arrangements and direction are by JP Sabard — who gets a great sound from Birkin on the sublime “Yesterday, Yes A Day” — and steps out instrumentally on tracks that include “Yesterday On Fender”, “Passage A Tobacco”, “Mi Corasong”, “Discophteque”, “Burnt Island”, and “Diapositivisme”.

Why you would want to cover an entire album, and a soundtrack at that, is a bit confusing, but seeing as how Shaft was a huge hit I guess Soul Mann & The Brothers could have picked worse material to work with. Although the sequencing is different, this album covers the first two sides of Isaac Hayes double LP soundtrack Shaft. There’s no singing and the sound is a little different but they don’t really change any of the compositions. I’d like to know the story behind this because it just seems like a cheap rip-off to cash in on the fame and money generated by the movie. Like the original Shaft OST, the best off of the Soul Mann’s version are Theme From Shaft, Bumpy’s Lament, Walk From Regio’s, and Elli’s Love Theme.
