If you know the film The Hot Spot, you know it's not the greatest. But you likely also know the soundtrack, featuring collaborations with Miles Davis and John Lee Hooker. The shared material is worth hearing for two reasons. One is that you can clearly hear both, and the other is that combination works. Augmented by Taj Mahal on dobro, Roy Rodgers on slide and Earl Palmer on drums, it's a total supergroup of non-rock musicians. Credit producer Jack Nitsche for corralling these epic talents. He's no stranger to that sort of thing (ala Mick Jagger and Ry Cooder's "Memo From Turner" from the soundtrack of Performance).
The "Ending Credits" cut has been posted here before, but I just ran across the the whole soundtrack, streaming at YouTube. Just let it rip, crank it up and go about your business. (There's YouTube to mp3 converters available online should you be particularly fiendish).
