Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story
Posted on: Tuesday, Sep 11, 2007
Here’s the trailer for the a new documentary series that will run in the US on the PBS network from August. I hope this comes to the UK.
PBS’ Great Performances series presents Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, the film tells the story behind the legendary label that launched such soul music greats as Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, Eddie Floyd, Carla and Rufus Thomas, Albert King and Booker T. and the MGs.
I hope that this gets picked up by the BBC. I suppose that the excellent BBC4 will be the natural home in the UK.
Let me know if you hear anything and I’ll make a further announcement if we get the show.
