‘Soul Power’ in more cities

This is me doubling down on my previous recommendation of the documentary film “Soul Power.” So much great concert footage in that flick. (Just look at those Spinners!)

“Soul Power” opens today in Philadelphia, Detroit, Houston, Seattle and several other cities.

In August, the movie rolls out to D.C., Denver, St. Louis, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta, Memphis and Richmond, among other towns.

If you’re in Charlotte, New Orleans, Pittsburgh or San Antonio, you’re gonna have to wait till September. Wherever you are, keep an eye out.

Don’t know if there’ll be a soundtrack album. So let me hit you with a cut from the “When We Were Kings” CD, which features sounds from the same music festival.

Click here to hear James Brown doing “The Payback.” You can watch this performance in “Soul Power.”

Yo I saw this film recently. Awesome. The Spinners were the highlight IMO - Philippe Wynne is just an amazing singer, and the bit when he spars with Ali is a classic - but the African bands are fantastic too. And the Godfather is just the Godfather.
