So Much Potential, So Much Missing

"Amazing that they can include so many great soul artists on this DVD set, but inexplicably FAIL to include by far the BEST live Soul Train performance ever: AL GREEN's mighty, gospel workout HERE I AM from 73! This is criminal - esp since an amazing snippet from this exact performance is featured on VH1 Classic's recent SOUL TRAIN: THE HIPPEST TRIP IN AMERICA doc that aired to promote this same DVD box set! Ironically, you'd probably do better to just DVR the VH1 doc, since it also takes time to feature what really drew fans to the show week after week for decades: THE DANCERS and the DANCE LINE! Cmon, to cut all that priceless footage out misses the entire selling point of the seminal show itself. Also, if you're just featuring performances, why not feature any artists from the 80s or 90s (I believe PRINCE appeared on the show for the firt time ever in '94 on his "Gold Experience" era?) and/or groups actually SPAWNED by Soul Train itself, i.e. no SHALAMAR? no JERMAINE STEWART? Really?! I could go on & on, as I'm a huge Soul Train fan, but, sadly, I won't be buying this."
NOT THE FULL EPISODES...

"Just featured performances from the show...you're lucky if you run into a Soul Train line or a regular dance sequence from the show. I'd rather DVR a full episode on Centric! Very disappointed."

"I have only seen Disc #1 so far. Quality is excellent, no annoying on-screen logos. Marvin Gaye and the O'Jays performances are badly lip-synced, the others are pretty exciting live performances. Oh yeah, somewhat disappointing was the screaming lead guitar in the Isley's "Who's That Lady" was way down in the mix, barely audible. I will buy this entire set however, just because it's such a great slice of '70s history."
