Got this one from your old blog. Pure dope, but would like to know the year it was published. Do you know?

Doctor Okeh said...

from what I've gathered on it , it was actually recorded sometime in the mid-90s , I'd say 95 or 96 , but was for some reason made or remade for this 1970's film "The Revenge of Mister Mopoji"
it'd be nice to see the film to hear what the actual score sounded like ,,,,good Q? Jazzsoulman.

Great post Dr. but as for the "actual movie":
Speaking of Sharon Jones ...

In the latest Harp Magazine, Andy Tennille, the brother of a FunkyPundit friend, has a feature on the Daptone Records' origins. In the beginning, label co-founder and Dap Tones bassist Gabe Roth struggled to find an audience for vintage soul and funk:

Obsessed vinylphiles were always looking for old, limited-edition pressings of rare funk and soul 45s, the more obscure the better. A few months later, Desco issued The Revenge of Mister Mopoji by an unknown group named Mike Jackson & the Soul Providers, heralding it as the long-awaited reissue of a soundtrack to an obscure ’70s kung fu movie.

“It was a fake reissue of a soundtrack to a kung fu movie that never actually existed,” Roth confesses with a sly grin. “We would go to record shops in New York to sell the album and store clerks would tell me, ‘I don’t want that. I got the original.’ There was no original soundtrack; there was no fucking movie to begin with. It was unbelievable. That’s when I realized how full of shit most of these people were.”

It's from the Blog Funky Pundit were after a bit of Googling I found this available too. *Laugs* Great music tho'

Hey Doc, I'm a little bit surprised. I would have sworn It's originally 70's. Sound like a true 70's gem. Anyway, thx for the answer.
