AllMusic Review by

A peculiar soundtrack for a film that hardly anyone saw, with cult soul artist Swamp Dogg credited as "music supervisor." Actually, Swamp Dogg performs about half of the songs, some of which are taken from vintage releases: "Remember I Said Tomorrow" was one of his best early-'70s songs, and the attractive ballad "Baby You're My Everything" was a small hit for him way back in the mid-'60s. It's difficult to determine whether the journeyman soul by Ruby Andrews, Michelle Williams, Charlie Whitehead, and Dave Cortez were recorded specifically for the soundtrack or taken from other sources (no dates are provided in the liner notes). If you're a Swamp Dogg fan, however, it's not such a bad thing to have around; several of his tracks are typically strong, witty soul tunes, and this may be the only place you can find "Baby You're My Everything" on CD.
