Roy Budd is a soundtrack composer you may not know. He never gained the fame of a Quincy Jones or Jerry Goldsmith, but that never kept him from writing one hell of a film score. Get Cater came in 1971--this is with Michael Cane, not the remake with Sylvester Stalone,
Budd made a type of classical funk for his film work, and for a great sampling of that, check out the Get Budd - O.S.T. double CD compilation. But this soundtrack is also important to hear, mixing Budd's style of instrumentals with early 1970s style R&B.
I respectfully disagree with my fellow reviewer. As a fan of deep funk, I highly appreciate the vintage R&B work here. Budd should have gone to work for Stax. Listen hard to "Love Is A Four Letter Word," which I had to stop the CD in the middle to play FIVE TIMES.
For this and Budd's instrumental work, Get Carter. Get Carter today.
