"SOUL POWER" - - New Film starring JAMES BROWN, BILL WITHERS B.B. KING, THE CRUSADERS, THE SPINNERS, FANIA ALL STARS, MANU DIBANGO & MORE !
THIS FILM IS PRODUCED FROM HOURS OF ORIGINAL CONCERT FOOTAGE not utilized in 'When We Were Kings' (the 1996 documentary film centring on the ALI - FOREMAN RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE).
Film maker Jeffrey Levy-Hinte finally put together, for all fans of late 1960's and early '70's SOUL 'N' FUNK, a faithful celluloid re-creation of that wonderful 1974 show-of-shows. Currently this full-length feature of that concert in The D.R. of the Congo (then Zaire) is playing across America and Europe and will be showing in major cities (3) of THE GREAT WHITE NORTH this coming weekend (Aug. 7th).
To read DJZigZag'z review of 'Soul Power' go to www.CinemaClock.com & log onto the movie.
