Petey Wheatstraw Original Soundtrack Reissued
Official reissue of this lost funky soundtrack from 1977 that features the one and only Rudy Ray Moore, otherwise known as Dolemite, and his band Nat Dove and the Devils! Nat Dove has been playing blues, boogie-woogie and barrelhouse music for over four decades. And, as one of the last of a breed of blues pianist, Dove is the most sought after and respected blues pianist in the western United States. Dove has been featured on the recordings of Robert Cray, George "Harmonica" Smith, Freddie King, Big Mama Thornton, T-Bone Walker, Pee Wee Crayton, Louis Meyers and Big Joe Turner... just to name a few.
Nat Dove and his funky combo The Devils lay down a monster set of grooves that virtually define the Blaxploitation sound. Most of the tracks on here are instrumentals, and a few of the cuts have vocals by Mary Love. The original is so rare it is impossible to find, and this reissue has excellent sound quality taken from the original master tapes. Includes the highly sought after funk classics "Junkie Chase", "Zombie March", "Ghetto Street U.S.A", and "Petey Wheatstraw" along with the original track listing and cover artwork.
