Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song [LP]
Artist: Melvin Van Peebles
Format: Vinyl

Rel. Date: 05/26/2017
UPC: 888072397712

Performed by a then-unknown Earth Wind & Fire with contributions by Van Peebles, who also composed the soundtrack, the music is funky, slippery, gritty, and soulful. Featuring a combination of hymn-based vocalization and jazz rhythms, Van Peebles created a sound that foreshadowed the use of sampling in hip hop music and captured the spirit of the time. Consistently hailed as a landmark, genre-defining album, MOJO Magazine recently rated Van Peebles' eclectic, grooving opus #32 on their top 1000 Soundtracks of all time. This brand new vinyl edition features new in-depth liner notes by Jeff Weiss (Passion of the Weiss, La Weekly, Pitchfork) and Melvin's son Mario Van Peebles, director of New Jack City (1991) and Baadasssss! (2003), a film he wrote and starred in that chronicles the making of his father's landmark film.
