This soundtrack takes you back to the film, interspersing music with a few lines of dialogue, which works really well. Courtney Pine's sax is haunting. And Brownie McGhee's Rainy Rainy Day is wonderful.
BUT--the CD is incomplete. I have a cassette on which I had taped the LP years ago, and it had LaVern Baker's Soul on Fire (which is brilliant) and The Girl of My Dreams. The CD, for some reason (and in spite of what is listed here) does not have these, and as a result, feels incomplete. Especially as The Girl of the Dreams is really the theme for the music of the film. That's why the four stars and not five.
Would appreciate it if this could be fixed!!
