The highlight of BVD 20131, Shows 22-26, is a complete show featuring Willie Mitchell and his Hi Records soul brethren and another show featuring Otis Redding and the Stax/Atlantic soul brothers. Just a few months after this show, Memphis bandleader Willie Mitchell would discover Al Green, but this is a priceless souvenir of his show circa 1966 with the great Don Bryant, bluesman Big Lucky Carter, and a very young Teenie Hodges. On the final BEAT show we see the absolute cream of Memphis soul with Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, the Ovations, the Bar-Kays, and Percy Sledge.
THE !!!! BEAT was almost too good to last, but in these 26 shows we see the beginning, middle, and end of soul music. Many fans never thought they’d ever see these shows, but now they’re here.complete and unedited. Soul perfection!
When you’re talking about soul music, it truly comes no better than this!
Fans in the UK can expect a treat in 2005 in the shape of a multi-part series on SOUL MUSIC, so SOUL is officially back.
