An excellent piece of work depicting the greatest music TV show on Earth.
19 February 2019 | by 1Mr-BeeSee all my reviews

A fine chronology of the work of Don Cornelius. The man who gave America "Soul Train", an institution at the time with some of the finest songs ever made in the history of Music. A sad tribute to a legend who masterminded the most significant music tv show there has ever been. The dancers are excellent with the performances of the actors it is all above standard for a tv channel like BET to televise. Well worth a watch! Spend a few bob and enjoy the story of a legend.
