release description

Authentic soul music and superstar musical performances are the consistent theme and backdrop for the forthcoming comedy, Soul Men, starring entertainment icon Bernie Mac, who passed away on August 9th 2008, and award-winning actor Samuel L. Jackson. More than just providing the musical narrative for the film, the Soul Men soundtrack stands alone as a solid album that faithfully recreates the legendary sound and flavor associated with Stax Records at the height of its popularity in the late '60s through the mid-'70s. This digital DJ promo features four of the best cuts from the album, including the Anthony Hamilton original "Soul Music," an infectious cover of the James & Bobby Purify 1966 hypnotic classic "I'm Your Puppet" by superstar John Legend (on which Mac and Jackson themselves sing), and an updated version of the 1971 Top 5 hit "Never Can Say Goodbye" by the late Isaac Hayes, who makes a poignant cameo appearance in the film, and whose passing (the day after Mac's death) was mourned worldwide. Bringing you these amazing tracks and more, this digital DJ promo is just a taste of what's to come on Soul Men.
