Thirty-four years after an obscure R&B group, The Final Solution, recorded a soundtrack for a blaxploitation film called Brotherman , the music from that film is going to be released, the New York Sun reported today (Tuesday). The movie itself was never released, the Sun said. According to the newspaper, one of the stand-out features of the recording is the guitar performance by Carl Wolfork, who also produced the recording. It noted that his guitar performance was intended as a temporary background for the singers until the entire recording could be dubbed over with a violin section. "What irony then," said the Sun , "that the failure of the film's producers to get it into theaters helped preserve the real genius of this soulful obscurity."
