Stax Soul, Civil Rights and Success

My take on three new Stax Records DVD releases.

While the Otis Redding disc is standard docu-biog + rare film and performances, the feature-length Respect Yourself: The Stax Story is a masterpiece. Revisit your soul roots with these 50th anniversary Stax releases.
