Reelblack Presents SOUL DEEP Episodes 3 & 4


Reelblack will showcase the next two episodes in the excellent BBC Documentary Series SOUL DEEP: THE STORY OF BLACK POPULAR MUSIC. Admission is $5 and includes refreshments.

Soul Deep - The Story of Black Popular Music
The Sound Of Young America - Ep 3

Motown changed the landscape of pop, rewrote the rulebook and created the sound of young America, which appealed to whites
as much as to blacks. Crossover soul was the vision of Motown's founder - Svengali figure Berry Gordy.

Soul Deep - The Story of Black Popular Music
Southern Soul - Ep 4

In the summer of 1967, Otis Redding performed in front of a 200,000 strong, mainly white, crowd at the Monterey Pop Festival.
Five years after walking into Stax Records studio in Memphis as an unknown singer, he was now breaking into the mass white
market and seducing its counter culture without diluting his sound. Soul Deep follows both Redding's rise, as he became the embodiment of Sixties soul music, and that of Stax Records as it crossed the racial divide at a time of segregation.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
