"War" was all I knew of Edwin Star: completely my loss. I recently found he was quite the film score maven listening to this Hell Up In Harlem Score.'
Though actually, "War" is a good indicator of where he takes the music for this film. Hell Up In Harlem has the same thick arrangements and giant cut blocks of funk that helped make "War" so powerful.
This was the mid-1970s, and production values were slicker. But Starr so reveled in working in sound maximus that the more shiny recordings bolster the tracks.
There is a whole world of Blaxploitation music beyond Superfly and Shaft, and if you are interested, you gotta include Hell Up In Harlem
