In this film based on a true story, Denzel Washington plays Coach Herman Boone, a black football coach chosen to lead a white Virginia high school football team in 1971 following a mandate to integrate this Alexandria district. Can Denzel save the day and pull his charges together even as he faces the obstacle of following in the footsteps of a white predecessor with several years seniority and a steadfast community following? You'll have to see the movie to get the answer, but in the meantime you can bask in the familiar sounds found on the soundtrack.
Cat Stevens ("Peace Train") and the inevitable Marvin Gaye/Tammy Terrell duet ("Ain't No Mountain High Enough") provide inspirational and harmonious grist. Elsewhere, early '70s musical staples by The Hollies ("Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)"), Eric Burdon & War ("Spill the Wine"), Norman Greenbaum ("Spirit in the Sky") and Steam ("Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye") set a feel for the time. The most unexpected selections come from Ike and Tina Turner (Sly Stone's "I Want To Take You Higher"), Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band (the ultra-funky "Express Yourself") and Buck Owens ("Act Naturally").
