The tiny Bryan label, responsible for other small-pressing soundtracks such as the funky Deep Throat II, was scored by Howard Roberts. The first side of the album features pop and funk songs from the film, while the second side is made up of gospel and religious tracks. There's a great funk instrumental with a big guitar sound, 'Funky, But?', and several notable groovy easy listening-style tracks. Difficult to find and invariably expensive, but rewarding. The album has an early 1970s or late 1960s feel that contradicts its release date.
