Soul! TV-Show 1968-1973

Thirteen, eine öffentliche New Yorker Fernsehstation, hat ihre Archive mit ihrer TV-Produktion Soul! geöffnet.  Zum Vorschein kamen rare Fernsehauftritte mit Sessions von Funk-und Soulmusikern wie Earth Wind and Fire, Black Ivory, Bobby Hebb, Curtis Mayfield (als Host) oder Asford and Simpson, aber auch mit vielen Musikern aus der Jazzszene, wie Woody Shaw, Roy Haynes, Max Roach, Ron Carter oder Rahsaan Roland Kirk:

This entertainment-variety-talk show was not only a vehicle to promote African-American artistry, community and culture, but also a platform for political expression and the fight for social justice. It showcased classic live musical performances from funk, soul, jazz, and world musicians, and had in-depth, extraordinary interviews with political, sports, literary figures and more. It was the first program on WNET to be recorded with the then-new technology of videotape, and most of the shows were recorded in real-time—not live, but unedited.

Soul ran from 1968 to 1973.
