This LP is everything we were hoping it'd be... and more. Sixteen absolute killer tracks from the De Wolfe Music Library. The theme here is what we'd call 70's crime-funk - very much in the style of the stuff on the Sweeny CD (the track "Hogan's Thing" appears on both the Sweeny CD and this LP).

You get a whole range of cool dark-blaxploitation/crime soundtrack stuff - fuzz guitar funk, funky-as-hell beats, early synth and even a lovely ambient track from 1980. This LP is absolutely essential.

Hello- Thank you for taking the time to post great stuff. I have the Music DeWolfe Vol. 1 CD but it has entirely different track to the tracklist here. Are there 2 versions of this CD ?
Cheers, LL-
