The soundtrack to 2002's blaxploitation movie spoof UNDERCOVER BROTHER contains a wealth of bell-bottomed, wide-lapeled funk, from Wild Cherry's perennial "Play That Funky Music (White Boy)" to the Mary Jane Girls' "All Night Long" (whose bass line alone has probably launched a million black-light-enhanced seductive endeavors). Though it's impossible to include everyone's period favorites, there's enough on offer here to ensure that no-one will leave unsatisfied.
There's James Brown's '60s anthem "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)," which provides the gritty bedrock truth ("we've been duped, and we've been scorned...") beneath all the ironic comedy, Gil Scott Heron's incendiary, if mistaken, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," and Carl Carlton's excellent, rarely heard "She's a Bad Mama Jama (She's Built, She's Stacked)," whose salivating lyric obviously predates political correctness by several millennia. The usual suspects such as Kool And The Gang's "Ladies' Night" and the Commodores' "Brick House" are here too, naturally, and with more contemporary artistes such as Snoop Dogg and Lil'J to give the whole project some kind of historical framework, UNDERCOVER BROTHER is either an hour's worth of musical history or a mini groovefest, depending on your inclination.
