Texas Boogie King

Movie Score Soundtrack of 1977 Hit "Petey Wheatstraw" Officially Reissued

Official reissue of this lost funky soundtrack from 1977 that features Nat Dove and the Devils! 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.

One of the funkiest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s -- a rare indie gem from Nat Dove & The Devils! Dove's got a style that's a lot rougher and rootsier than other soundtrack artists of the 70s -- an approach that's more based in the modes of the indie funk underground of the time, and less in the more polished studio funk you'd find on bigger film releases. The grit in the grooves is wonderfully welcome here -- and it's a quality that really sets this one apart from the pack, and keeps it in heavy rotation over the years! Most of the tracks on here are instrumentals, and a few of the cuts have vocals by Mary Love -- and titles include "Joy", "Petey Wheatstraw", "Steve's Den", Junkie Chase", "Zombie March", "Ghetto Street USA", and "Loving You".
