Melvin Van Peebles pretty much did it all by himself on his 1971 action film Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, from writing, directing and editing to starring and composing the music. A young up-and-coming Earth, Wind & Fire was recruited to perform the soundtrack, recorded at Paramount Studios in Hollywood for Stax.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
