CD You Should Own Now

Some called the Wattstax festival at the Los Angeles Coliseum on August 20, 1972 — organized by soul/R&B powerhouse Stax Records — the “black Woodstock.” Some would say it was even better than that. Hear for yourself now that a new three-disc deluxe edition of the concert has just been made available. Among others, it features Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, the Bar-Kays, Carla Thomas, and the late, great Johnnie Taylor.
