Summer of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack accompanies Questlove’s directorial debut documentary.Like the documentary, most of the audio recordings that were recorded during the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival have not been heard for over 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.Additionally, the Soundtrack boasts everything from B.B. King’s poignant and powerful guitar-driven gem Why I Sing The Blues to the rapturous Precious Lord Take My Hand by The Operation Breadbasket Orchestra & Choir featuring Mahalia Jackson and Mavis Staples. Not to mention, Gladys Knight & The Pips show out on a simmering I Heard It Through The Grapevine, while Nina Simone’s voice smoulders on Backlash Blues and Are You Ready.
