Across 110th Street / Bobby Womack

Listen: Across 110th Street / Bobby Womack Across 110th Street.mp3

Think grainy, washed out color, heroin in Harlem 70′s blaxploitation films and you’ll have a spot-on stereotypical description of ‘Across 110th Street’. Formula even. Probably more known for his less gimmicky writing, this still is a favorite track. Any of those accusations – all of which I’ve read – are way overshadowed by an almost perfect soundtrack theme. It’s funny how so much of that era’s music was similar in production and instrumentation. It’s all rolled up nicely in this one song. As always, a stellar vocal too.
