Description

In the winning spirit of Standing In The Shadows Of Motown, Only The Strong Continue to exist brings together an amazing array of musical icons! With living legends such as Isaac Hayes, Herry Butler, Sam Moore, Wilson Pickett and Mary Wilson performing together on one stage, it’s a dream revue of original artists and songs that won The usa’s heart… and filled it with soul. Also featuring the Chi-Lites, Ann Peebles and Carla and Rufus Thomas… the night these legends come together will be a night you’ll be able to never overlook!

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand the usage of DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com’s standard return policy will apply.

One reviewer has called Only the Strong Survive “an American Buena Vista Social Club,” and that’s the reason not a bad way to describe this entertaining 2002 documentary. It certainly has a righteous pedigree: co-directors D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus have between them been responsible for films like Monterey Pop, Bob Dylan’s Don’t Look Back, Down from the Mountain, Startup.com, and a large number of others; meanwhile, many of the great soul singers who appear here, including Isaac Hayes, Wilson Pickett, Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave), and Carla Thomas, have retained much of their power since their heydays decades ago. The interview portions are fun–we learn, for instance, that “the wicked Pickett” has a stash of $1,000 shirts and $6,000 suits–but it’s the musical numbers that are the main attraction, and there are some good ones. Even better, the DVD’s bonus features include half a dozen complete live performances not in the original film, in conjunction with audio observation by legendary producer Jerry Wexler and several of the artists. Sure, it would have been nice if Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, and other living soul greats had also taken part, but hearing Eugene Record and the Chi-Lites singing “Oh Girl” is just about worth the cost of admission alone. –Sam Graham
