Wattstax was the greatest music documentary I remember seeing in 2004 during my senior year in college. When I graduated, I went to every major record store in Manhattan searching for the DVD. I eventually found it at Virgin Megastore in Times Square, buried in the section where they sold concert DVDs and music video compilations. The golden cover shimmered the Black excellence of Issac Hayes and Richard Pryor. It felt good to hold a piece of history in my hands that seemed lost in obscurity.
