Movie Reviews

"Rock Your Baby"
Glen Ramirez | Massachusetts | 03/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once again, another enjoyable concert from PBS. This event took place in November 2003 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Great line-up of artists with hits scanning years throughout the 70's. The Philadelphia sound is well represented here:

* The Stylistics (WITHOUT the GREAT Russell Thompkins, Jr. who was replaced by the much younger Harold "Eban" Brown who does a stand-out job and sounds incredibly identical).
* The Chi-Lites (WITH Eugene Record who died on July 22, 2005 after a battle with cancer).
* Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (WITHOUT of course, the GREAT Teddy Pendergrass on lead).

My personal highlight was a wonderful performance by George McRae (flying in from Amsterdam for the concert) singing his classic "Rock Your Baby". He doesn't disappoint. British Soul artist Maxine Nightingale is in top form singing "Right Back Where We Started From".

The others do a stand-out job and are very enthusiastic in their performances. It's all presented in 5.1 audio, 94 minutes long and 21 great tracks of fun.

Audio: 5 stars

Performances: 4.5 stars"
A Real Treat
C. A. Ingram | Solihull, West Midlands England | 09/13/2004

"Yes this is another of those great PBS specials.Great to have this once in a lifetime concert on DVD.I believe there is a part two or another installment pending,I for one can't wait!All soul fans and lovers of real music should purchase this.
A few weeks ago this was changing hands for three times the price.Buy it now before it disappears and becomes a collectable item!God Bless PBS,Keep up these quality shows.
If only the BBC and other stations could put together such shows.
Highlights for me are Chi-Lites Feat Eugene Record,Manhattans,Bloodstone,Commodores McFadden & Whitehead,Geoge McCrae and Tavares.How do you top these acts? With the loss of so many soul artists this year these shows are an important lasting legacy."

"great music,great artists and this is all about philadelphia superstars of the 70's.pbs has already released "rythm,love&soul which is according to me could be motown superstars of the 70's in as much as i rate "superstars of 70's soul" as philly groups and also "soul comes home" as stax.pbs must continue to keep up a good,and the likes of the whispers,o'jays and many more is needed.god bless pbs."
