Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get says the opening song. Wattstax, the dynamic film of the 1972 Los Angeles event attended by over 100,000 concertgoers and first billed as the black Woodstock, gets ya plenty. It's performances burn with vitality. It's forays into the neighborhood are a time capsule of pride and pain. And the Richard Pryor comedy riffs that provide the film's running commentary are a treasure all by themselves. New generations can now experience this Special Edition that restores the film's infamous lost ending performances by Isaac Hayes. Funk, R & B, Gospel, Blues, Soul whatever your groove is, it's here, with a sparkling, remastered soundtrack. You haven't gotten down till you've flapped to Do the Funky Chicken. Spread your wings!
