Press Release :
"Not just another blaxploitation soundtrack compilation, this is a collection of music taken from 1970s X-rated African-American films and made available for the first time anywhere. These X-rated films feature less 'by the numbers' funk and more improvised grooves and 'avant garde' textures than the typical blaxploitation soundtracks. Using mainly jazz musicians from Oakland, CA (where many of these films were made), these recently uncovered master tapes (and the 16 pages of color photos) are sure to delight your eyes and ears."
