"Across 110th Street"

Bobby Womack's "Across 110th Street" is one of my favorite songs from the 1970's blaxploitation cinema era. It is an incredible tune that's been jangling around in my head for the past several days. It ranks right up there with the works of Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield from the same time period. Exceptional, smooth sounding funk and soul. You may recognize this song from the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown". I hope to watch the original movie it came from, "Across 110th Street", very soon. In the meantime, here's the song for your enjoyment.
