Excellent! Including all the important musicians!
16 December 2019 | by kalinga-54118See all my reviews

An excellent recap of the storied Apollo and its history, including the man who changed the world of music and this venue forever: James Brown. His legendary performances are chronicled, as well as those of many other giants of Soul and R&B music.

There are amazing stories and interesting interviews with all the relevant people involved in making the Apollo into the legend it is today and nobody is left out.

If you're into the history of Soul music, you must see this film and you will agree that this thorough documentary perfectly captures the spirit of the legendary Apollo and leaves nothing out!
