Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Adrian Younge.

Adrian Younge: law professor by day, music scholar, film editor, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and probably a few other things by night. Tapped by director Scott Sanders, Younge not only edited the Blaxploitation homage BLACK DYNAMITE but scored it, all the while playing over a dozen instruments--from monophonic synthesizer to electric sitar--and directing a session band with several male and female vocalists. Younge and his associates recorded the material with the intent to have it sound exactly like a score from the '70s, and they achieved that. No piece of equipment used in the recording dated later than the late-`70s, and Younge's obvious knowledge of '70s black music--blaxploitation scores in particular--is astonishing. He skillfully walks a creative tightrope, incorporating virtually all the trademarks of an early '70s blaxploitation score without being overly referential. These songs are far too durable to be disregarded as kitsch, all worthy of Black Dynamite--a man who "put Nixon on the run," "killed them dirty crooks," and "beat the devil with a shovel three times a day."
