  • Summer of Soul

    I'll put this here as it is more a documentary combined with music. I never knew about this going on in the summer of 1969 like Woodstock at the same time in 1969. The festival was filmed for later distribution on TV but found no market (guess why) and has been out of sight for 52 years. I caught wind of it when reading the BBC two days ago. A 2 hour show that I just watched on Hulu. It is called the Harlem Cultural Festival. For anybody who was of a decent age back then you will revisit the Summer of 1969 both good and bad. I know when I heard Aquarius early on, been decades, this wave rushed over me and I was back in my junior year of high school with all this gong on. I know AR is somewhat close to my age so maybe he''ll recognize some things. this was excellent.
