Notes

Summer Of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) Original motion picture soundtrack

The Roots’ Questlove Thompson’s directorial debut!

Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival!

Summer of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack accompanies Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s directorial debut documentary Summer Of Soul, which won the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. Like the documentary, most of the audio recordings that were recorded during the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival have not been heard for more than 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America’s history lost — until now.

The Summer Of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is a joyous musical celebration and the rediscovery of a nearly erased historical event that celebrated Black culture, pride and unity. For the album, Questlove carefully selected 17 live renditions of jazz, blues, R&B, Latin, and soul classics performed over the course of The Harlem Cultural Festival in 1969 as chronicled by the film. Performers include The 5th Dimension, B.B. King, Nina Simone, and Sly & The Family Stone!
