Only The Stong Survive

Only The Stong Survive cover

A friend at work just told me about this...

DA pennebaker and Chris Hegedus go in search of the great soul performers who were left behind by disco.

On their journey they find and record legendary soul stars that have never stopped singing: Wilson Pickett, Sam Moore (of Sam&Dave), Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Isaac Hayes, Jerry "Only the Strong Survive" Butler and the ChiLites.

Combining new recordings with archival footage is a permanent film document of classic rhythm and blues stars - some 25 years after the hits stopped coming.

"A dream movie soundtrack... its fascinating to watch a group of artists who still get an enormous buzz from performing."
