Bobby Womack – Across 110th Street

Across 110th StreetAcross 110th Street is a 1972 American crime drama film starring Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto, and Anthony Franciosa, and directed by Barry Shear. Commonly associated with the blaxploitation genre at the time, it has received considerable critical praise from writer Greil Marcus and others for surpassing the limitations of that genre.

The critically praised title song, written by Bobby Womack and J.J. Johnson, was a No. 19 hit on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart in 1973, and was later featured in Quentin Tarantino‘s 1997 blaxploitation homage Jackie Brown. It is also heard in Ridley Scott‘s 2007 film American Gangster, and as a background song for the video game True Crime: New York City. The title song was also used as the theme song to the television show ‘Michigan Replay.’
