Come Back, Charleston Blue is a 1972 comedy film starring Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques, loosely based on Chester Himes’ novel The Heat’s On. It tells the tale of Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, who are confounded by a string of strange murders in the neighborhood of Harlem, New York. The murders themselves aren’t nearly as bizarre as the calling card left by the murderer: a blue steel straight razor. Legend has it that this was the calling card of Charleston Blue, a vigilante who tried to rid the neighborhood of all criminal elements using a straight razor.

The soundtrack was composed in full by R&B star Donny Hathaway except for “Little Ghetto Boy” by Earl DuRouen and Edward Howard, and “Come Back Charleston Blue”, for which Hathaway enlisted the help of Al Cleveland and Quincy Jones.
