Music From The Wattstax Festival & Film - Various Artists: Conceived as a black Woodstock and offered at a buck a ticket as a virtual gift to the people of Los Angeles by Memphis’s Stax Records, the 1972 Wattstax festival continues to reverberate as one of the most earthshaking concerts in the annals of black-American music. Some 112,000 people assembled peacefully at the Los Angeles Coliseum for seven hours of music by nearly every artist signed to Stax at the time. Label luminaries such as Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, the Bar-Kays, Carla Thomas and Rufus Thomas offered stunning performances, with lesser-known figures such as Little Sonny, Lee Sain and the Temprees also nicely represented. Also adding to the spiritual dimension of Wattstax was its wealth of great gospel music, delivered by such artists as Deborah Manning, Louise McCord, the Rance Allen Group, and recorded at a nearby storefront church, the Emotions. This glorious 3 CD set includes more than 3 hours of outstanding music, with almost a third of this repertoire never previously available.
