Last year, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown from acclaimed director Alex Gibney was released and later aired on HBO. Now the documentary that features the Godfather of Soul is getting a more widespread release on DVD and Blu-Ray. The film was bestowed with the prestigious Peabody Award, which praised the “truly revolutionary musical figure and his legacies.”


Beyond the two-hour feature, a number of bonus features are included in the set such as commentary and interviews with notable figures such as Questlove, Alan Leeds, Harry Weinger, Fred Wesley, Bootsy Collins, Chuck D, Maceo Parker, and more. Additionally, it features Soul Train performances from 1974 with his own band, as well as a 1975 performance with B.B. King and Bobby “Blue” Bland.

Universal released Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown on November 6 on Blu-ray and DVD.
