Soul Power

I've been waiting some time now for the Soul Power documentary to reach DVD. I picked up a copy in the city and watched it closely last night. Wow! Great footage and incredible sound. My only gripe is about the shortage of concert footage...I want more of Franco, OK Jazz, Tabu Ley, Afrisa, Miriam Makeba, Manu Dibango, Hugh Masekela and others. Apparently there is another 12 hours of concert footage waiting....

Now many people have asked me to re-up the James Brown performance from Kinshasa in 1974 and so here it is, once more!

I agree with you. The film is fantastic but VERY frustrating. I don't understand why the movie is so short while we are led to believe that the entire concert was filmed. A problem of copyrights maybe?
