John Lee Hooker: The Boogie Man #

Released 4/27/2019

Description: John Lee Hooker was one of the best bluesmen of the 20th century. Born into poverty and racial segregation, he lived through a monumental time in American history. This is the storyline of a cultural icon, and his far-reaching impact on famous music, said in his own words and those of his family and closest collaborators. Interviews with Keith Richards, Van Morrison, Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt and Robert Cray say how an illiterate boy from the rural and impoverished backwaters of the Mississippi Delta influenced their own musical journey. We reveal his part in bringing the Blues to a fresh generation of young British musicians and how, in turn, those musicians introduced young, mainstream Americans to their own cultural heritage.

Shake Dance: The Movie #

Released 2/1/2001

Description: For years, a nice deal of Southern hip-hop and dance melody has been all about shakin' the booty, so it's no surprise that at gentlemen's clubs in the Deep South, one of the featured attractions has become the "shake dance," in which girls present off how they can shake their bodies from the waist down in time to the melody -- no simple task when the beats are pumping at 140 bpm. Shake Dance is a documentary that takes viewers to a number of strip clubs in the Atlanta area, where some of the nation's greatest shake dancers present off their moves and talk about their jobs; some regard what they do as an art form and a means of private expression, while others just look at dancing as a quick method to create a buck. Shake Dance details melody from a handful of the South's leading dance melody acts, including 95 South, Quad Town Family, and 69 Boyz.
