SOUL POWER is marvelous, and no wonder -- among the performers in this concert film are James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba and Celia Cruz, all at the peak of their powers.

SOUL POWER combines electrifying performances from King, Brown, and The Spinners with behind-the-scenes footage of the performers in Zaire and the always-magnetic Muhammad Ali goofing around.

What's infectious in SOUL POWER is the almost shocking optimism of its America-meets-Africa '70s world-beat vibe. -- Grade: B

Product Description:

Though the eyes of the world were on "The Rumble in the Jungle" in 1974, their ears should have been on Zaire '74, the mammoth music festival that took place in the shadow of the battle between Mohammad Ali and George Foreman. This documentary takes the stellar cut footage from WHEN WE WERE KINGS and chronicles the concerts from big names such as James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers, and Celia Cruz. Though Zaire '74 might have been overlooked in favor of the legendary fight, SOUL POWER still packs a serious punch for music fans.
