Tan solo dos días después de la muerte del legendario fundador de Stax Records, Jim Stewart, el sello y Craft Recordings han anunciado el lanzamiento de una serie de ediciones que rinden homenaje al icónico concierto benéfico Wattstax de 1972 que tuvo lugar en el Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Las enormes cajas “Soul’d Out: The Complete Wattstax Collection” y “Wattstax: The Complete Concert”, saldrán a la venta el 24 de febrero.

LA REENCARNACION DE "WATTSTAX", EL FILM Y FESTIVAL

 

Del comunicado del 7 de diciembre:

“Creado en conjunto con el Watts Summer Festival anual para conmemorar el séptimo aniversario del levantamiento de Watts en Los Ángeles, el concierto benéfico Wattstax del 20 de agosto de 1972 contó con la asistencia de más de 100,000 personas. Contó con actuaciones de los artistas más populares de Stax Records de la época, incluidos, entre otros, Isaac Hayes, The Staple Singers, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas y The Bar-Kays. Estos lanzamientos son las primeras colecciones de audio completas de lo que el creador de Wattstax y entonces presidente de Stax Records, Al Bell, llama la ‘celebración más jubilosa de la música, la cultura y los valores afroamericanos en la historia de Estados Unidos'”.

“Soul’d Out: The Complete Wattstax Collection” es una impresionante caja de 12 CDs que presenta el concierto completo de L.A. Memorial Coliseum de 1972 más grabaciones del Summit Club, incluidas 31 pistas inéditas. Estas grabaciones se encuentran en un folio con un libro a todo color de 76 páginas que presenta una introducción de Bell y nuevos ensayos de Rob Bowman y A. Scott Galloway. Una versión inédita del himno icónico del soul funk “Theme From Shaft” de Isaac Hayes de su set principal en Wattstax ha sido lanzada como adelanto.

“Wattstax: The Complete Concert” incluye el concierto completo del L.A. Memorial Coliseum y está disponible en formatos de 6 CDs y 10 LPs. Además de las actuaciones musicales, presenta todos los discursos y otras bromas del evento, incluido el MC del evento, el discurso “I Am Somebody” del reverendo Jesse Jackson, al que a menudo se hace referencia.

Ambas ediciones incluyen un libro a todo color con una introducción del creador de Wattstax, Al Bell, y ensayos de Rob Bowman y A. Scott Galloway.

Además va a ser publicado el CD individual “The Best of Wattstax”, que reúne una selección cuidadosamente seleccionada de 20 de los mejores temas del concierto y sirve como una excelente introducción a lo que supuso y representó.

Recientemente recuperadas de las cintas analógicas originales, las reediciones de los dos álbumes de la BSO “Wattstax: The Living Word” y “The Living Word: Wattstax 2”, que incluyen lo más destacado del concierto y el documental posterior, también se reeditarán en formatos de 2 LPs en la misma fecha.
