Editorial Reviews

The soundtrack to a relatively little-known 1972 blaxploitation film featured songs written and performed by Bobby Womack, as well as a musical score by J.J. Johnson. Although the inconsistency of the approach precluded a musical statement along the lines of Superfly, it's an interesting find for those looking for little-heeded early-'70s soul with funk and rock influences. Womack's cuts count among his better material, and even if the title track cops much of its attitude from Superfly, it has a satisfyingly tough soul-rock groove of its own. "If You Want My Love" is a good grainy ballad, "Quicksand" a propulsive number well-suited for action scenes, and "Do It Right" in the mold of James Brown, but more rock-oriented. Johnson's instrumental contributions, while not as interesting, set a nice period soul-jazz mood, and there are nifty periodic washes of electronic effects in both composers' contributions. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

When I was a child, my older sisters and brothers often had the radio on and more than often I would hear the sounds of Bobby Womack coming across the speakers. I was naturally drawn to his music because I love poetry and am a poet myself but after watching Bobby Womack UNSUNG, I realize that there were some songs that I didn't remember hearing before like, "If You Don't Want My Love" and there was another one but I can't remember the name of it now but it was a song that I hadn't heard before either. So I found myself ordering this cd and another one. I saw him once at the Blues Festival in Columbia, SC a few years back but I couldn't get close enough to even wish for an autograph because the man that I was with was threaten by this singer...imagine that. I was in my 30s then and Bobby was probably 60ish but I waited close to midnight just to hear him sing, he was the last performer and the only reason that I went to the concert (nothing against the other singers though). I also learned that he is a very accomplished guitar player as well. The fourth song on this album is an instrumental but it got me to moving in my room when I played it. I love the 70s era, its fashion, its music...so maybe that's why I was drawn to him, his voice, his style; I have a bit of an old soul...and his music, his soul (which I believe plays an instrumental part in writing his songs) speak to me. I was also impress with his pick of artist for his tribute album by Calvin Richardson, if you haven't heard it...you should get it. He's not Bobby Womack but he will make you fall in love with him all over again. Like Bobby, Calvin Richardson, can blow!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep singing and performing Bobby Womack cause you definitely have a gift and an audience both young and old!!!

When I moved from the US to Thailand nearly 20 years ago, one of my biggest regrets was having to leave behind some of my music collection. The fabulous soundtrack to "Across 110th Street" was one of those that didn't make the journey with me due to baggage limitations (which would be far worse nowadays!). In any case, I rejoiced at getting the chance to buy this CD again, and now it has a bonus disc that contains two Bobby Womack albums from the same era.

"Across 110th Street", released in 1972, is indeed a classic soundtrack, and the title track in particular has gained renewed popularity after being used in Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" soundtrack in the 90s. But this soundtrack has much more than a few cool Bobby Womack songs. In fact, the glue that holds the soundtrack together are the instrumental contributions from J.J. Johnson, who composed and conducted the musical score to the film, co-wrote the title cut with Womack, and supplies more magic along the way. If you like Johnson's compositions on here you should also check out the other amazing soundtrack he did in the 70s, "Cleopatra Jones". Great stuff!

40 years after it was released, "Across 110th Street" still stands as one of the better soundtracks of the "Blaxploitation" era. Although it barely cracks the 30-minute barrier, the music is all outstanding. Five stars on its own. The bonus disc with this package contains two studio albums by Womack; his 1973 album "Facts of Life" and the 1974 followup "Lookin' For a Love Again." I had heard many of those songs before, thanks to various Womack compilations that I own, but I had never heard each album in its entirety, so a lot of these tunes were new to me. As with many studio albums of that era, there are some gems and some filler.

I actually bought this soundtrack after hearing the song "Across 110th Street" on Entourage (during the credits). I had forgotten how good a song it is by Bobby Womack, so I explored further. I don't believe it is on his greatest hits, but if it is, I suggest getting that over this soundtrack. The disk is pretty short in length and at times really felt like a soundtrack minus the movie, which of course changes the music.

However, not bad music and would not be a bad pick up if you like seventies style music (think police or chase scene music from the seventies).

This is pure Bobby creations of melodic sounds and vocal vibrations. Bobby sings in this soundtracks, all the weariness and stiff of going "Across 110th Street ."
