    I agree on the first part and I find the second part informative... and terrifying. I may be over opinionated cause the first one so terrific. Still incredible that there is a movie with Aretha, Ray, Cab Calloway(!), James Brown, Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Animal, Princess Leia, Pee Wee, and so many others.. :awesome:

    The holy diver cover is ON POINT and I loved both also.

    Second one I'm gonna give a listen to later. Then will decide.
