James Brown - Slaughter's Big Rip Off

James Brown’s original soundtrack album for the 1973 blaxploitation film classic Slaughter’s "Big Rip-Off" gets the 180-gram reissue treatment here, with faithfully replicated artwork including Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off’s gatefold.

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 onBillboard’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.”
