Wattstax: The Special Edition

"Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" says the opening song. Wattstax, they dynamic film of the 1972 Los Angeles event attended by over 100,000 concertgoers and first billed as the "black Woodstock," getcha plenty. Its performances burn with vitality. It forays into the neighborhood are a time capsule of pride and pain. And the Richard Pryor comedy riffs that provide the film's running commentary are a treasure all by themselves.

New generations can now experience the 30th- Anniversary Special Edition that restores the film's infamous last ending performances by Isaac Hayes. Funk, R&B, Gospel, Blues, Soul - whatever your groove is, it's here, with a sparkling, remastered Dolby 5.1 Digital soundtrack. You haven't gotten down till you've flapped to "Do The Funky Chicken". Spread your wings!
