Friday Funk

At 11:59, I'm cutting it close this week. But here is my favorite clip from the great film Wattstax:

Thanks Gonzo - I had no idea this existed. I hit Netflix, and it'll be here tomorrow.
Great clip!

Yeah - one of my favorite music movies of all time! Let me know what you think when you watch it.

Just watched Wattstax this morning. Now I'm on LastFM listening to the Bar-Kays, Rufus Thomas, and all this other great music that I've never given enough time to. 70's funk / soul / r&b.... I'll be hanging around here for a while. GREAT film - such a great historical document, with all those great artists... What else on DVD captures that era? I want more!

Yeah, it definitely gives you an appreciation for the label. And I love that the documentary also has this social commentary aspect to it.

I can't think of any similar films off the top of my head. If something strikes me, you'll be the first to know!
