Album: Marvin Gaye, Trouble Man (Expanded Edition) (Motown)

It's a three-horse race in the blaxploitation movie soundtrack music stakes, between Superfly, Shaft and this fella, and this fella might, arguably, push Superfly to the line.

Trouble Man does not contain Marvin's greatest work, but it does pulsate with funky orchestrated soul of great sophistication. This edition weds the original album to the "original film score" and out-takes. Bitty but fascinating, from "Crap Game" to "Getting Pete".
