"Funky. Emotional. Raw. Powerful. That was soul music in the Civil Rights era; and Stax Records did it like no other. Stax quickly became a hit-making machine, producing a massive catalog of Top 100 records that defined the "Memphis Sound", such as "Soul Man", "(Sittin On) The Dock Of The Bay", "Green Onions", "Midnight Hour", "I'll Take You There", "Respect Yourself", "Theme From Shaft" and many more. Stax also launched the careers of a who's-who of soul music greats: Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, The Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Eddie Floyd, Carla and Rufus Thomas, Albert King and Booker T. and the MGs, to name just a few. Now, with the release of this exciting new DVD, Grammy-nominated filmakers Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville ("Muddy Waters Can't Be Satisfied") present the first comprehensive look at Stax, the greatest soul label of all time."

Un très bon documentaire (en anglais) retraçant la montée en force puis la chute du label de Memphis Stax Records.
Un DVD que je conseille vivement.
