5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing music! Makes ya think of lusciuos hookers! September 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"Coffy" has been one of my favorite movies for a very long time and I would have dreams of owning a copy of the soundtrack, and guess what, dreams DO come true! Although a bit pricey, worth every damn penny! Move over Shaft and Superfly, every track is pure quality jazz, for real, Roy Ayers is a genious. Another good thing is that it's not overplayed like the other two soundtracks mentioned (why is released in Japan and not here?). It's great mood music, especially for playing cards and cocktail parties, everyone loves it (and if they don't, they need to go!). The best tracks I believe are Aragon (as heard in "Jackie Brown"), Coffy is the Color, Coffy Baby and, of course, King George. Please do not look past this treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential Ayers July 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm big Roy Ayers fan and own many of his recordings on vinyl, including a terribly scratched up version of Coffy, so I was thrilled to be able to find this import CD. Kind of spendy, but worth it. BTW: The movie's great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Time March 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When it comes to blaxploitation movie soundtracks, the revolutionary acid-jazz of vibraphonist Roy Ayers often gets lost in the shuffle with "Shaft" (Isaac Hayes), "Superfly" (Curtis Mayfield) and "Black Caesar" (James Brown)....but his 14 tracks are as good as it gets.

The smooth grooves are paced by percussionist William King and drummer Dennis Davis, with the brass handled by a superfecta that includes Jon Faddis and Cecil V. Bridgewater. Four cuts have vocals - "Coffy Is The Color" (Denise Bridgewater, Wayne Garfield, Ayers), "King George" (Ayers), "Coffy Baby" (Bridgewater), "Shining Symbol" (Garfield) - with the former being the standout cut. There is a sweet flow from "Coffy Is The Color," "Priscilla's Theme" and "King George," with a winning exacta in the final tunes, "Vittroni's Theme - King Is Dead" and "End Of Sugarman."

A mini-movie poster is also enclosed, with actress Pam Grier prominently featured. Released in 1973, the music retains its vibrancy through the riffs that a listener cannot resist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your Coffy today! May 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Pam Grier movie! I got this soundtrack a couple of years ago from Amazon. It's a wonderful soundtrack that is full of variety. If you loved "Coffy" the movie, then your will love the soundtrack. Nothing id left out. (even the creepy harpsicord music) The key tracks are the COFFY is the COLOR, Coffy Baby and King George (he's a pimp. He's a pusher). What a great find!
