James Brown: Soul Survivor FULL DOCUMENTARY

JB cover

This is an incredible documentary about the Godfather of Soul, the one and only, James Brown. Modern music as we know it would not be the same without this titan of music, politics and Black culture. We were intrigued by the way this doc combines readings from James Brown’s autobiography, images and interviews with notables like Chuck D. and Rev. Al Sharpton. For anyone enjoying hip hop, funk, soul, rock, blues or any kind of music form, this should be required watching. Enjoy.

Description:

James Brown: Soul Survivor spans more than four decades of the one and only Godfather of Soul, documenting the rise and fall of the “hardest working man in show business.” Through archival footage, excerpts read from his biography, and interviews with the people closest to the man, you get an inside look at the music and political times which helped shape Brown’s career through the ages. Various friends lending thoughts in the program include the Rev. Al Sharpton, rapper Chuck D, Little Richard, and former long-time musical director Fred Wesley. Performances include segments from a House of Blues gig along with rare, behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage of the maestro at work. Originally aired as part of the American Masters television documentary series, this 90-minute special was later released on DVD under the Polydor label.
