Cat no. 6771765
James Brown’s original soundtrack album for the 1973 blaxploitation film classic Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off is reissued. Released in August 1973, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off is the sequel to 1972’s Slaughter. Set in Los Angeles, the Gordon Douglas-directed mob drama stars Jim Brown, Ed McMahon, Don Stroud, Brock Peters, Gloria Hendry, and Dick Anthony. James Brown’s original soundtrack includes score pieces, plus “Brother Rapp,” Brown’s previously released single which peaked at No.2 on Billboard’s R&B chart and at No. 32 on the Pop chart, as well as Sexy, Sexy, Sexy, Brown’s sped-up rework of his 1966 hit, Money Won’t Change You, with different lyrics. That track was released as a single from the Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off soundtrack, peaking at No. 6 on Billboard’s R&B chart and at No. 50 on the Pop chart. The soundtrack’s Happy For The Poor is a Latin-styled version of the 1971 J.B.’s single, Gimme Some More.
