A pretty good Otis documentary shown on BBC4 last night with contributions from his wife Zelma and their daughter; Steve Cropper; Booker T. etc. It was however a bit of an exaggeration to say that British fans didn't know what Otis looked like before he arrived in the UK, even if two of the three LPs issued here at the time didn't have his photograph (not uncommon for LPs distributed by Atlantic Records at the time). It's available until next weekend

Also available until next Friday, a 60 minute version of the 1967 film of the Stax/Volt Tour in Norway

The Stax documentary 'Respect Yourself' gets a BBC4 outing next Friday (7th) together with a Bobby Womack documentary, and 60 minutes from the 1971 "Soul to Soul" concert with Wilson Pickett and Ike & Tina in Ghana.
