-- "Unhindered by foggy sound quality, this first-time CD issue of the soundtrack is both predictably fun and surprisingly fine."
Though Rudy Ray Moore is better known as an X-rated comedian than as a crime-busting cinematic hero, the mid-1970s blaxploitation movies starring his standup character Dolemite are genre classics. The accompanying soundtrack album is packed with vintage '70s R&B instrumentals like "The Rumble" and "Ghetto Expressions" as well as SHAFT-style paeans of praise for Dolemite's physical and sexual prowess ("Power of Your Love," "When We Start Making Love"). There's also the added bonus of Moore's original radio promo spots, featuring excerpts from his vintage "Dolemite" stage toasts.
