Various Artists - Super Bad on Celluloid Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 June 1998
Super Bad On Celluloid, Hip-O Records
Performance 9 Sound 8

ImageLadies and Gentlemen, it is time for you to buy another CD. Sorry we have to be so demanding, but the fine folks over at Hip-O have just made this one too hard to resist. Granted, a number of these songs found their way onto another collection a few years ago (the Ice T & Jorge Hinojosa produced 'Pimps, Players, & Private Eyes'), however, this is still a must have.

The first reason for this is simply the music itself. Classics such as Issac Hayes' "Theme From Shaft" and Aretha Franklin's "Something He Can Feel" are impressively interlaced with the theme from 'Cleopatra Jones,' George Benson's "The Greatest Love Of All," and Willie Hutch's "Brother's Gonna Work It Out." The other reason you need this album--as if the music wasn't reason enough--is a mastering job that is, if you'll pardon the pun, masterful. These songs--all recorded in the 1970's--all find a way come alive on a good system and deliver from start to finish. In short, we say, buy this album and stay cool, baby.
