Editorial Reviews

The film Soundtrack for a Revolution tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons and in jail cells as they fought for justice and
equality. Executive produced by Corey Smyth, the soundtrack features contemporary artists singing their renditions of freedom songs that were prevalent in the civil rights movement. Smyth was also music producer for the film.

Soundtrack for a Revolution celebrates the vitality of this music. Directed by Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman (Nanking), and executive produced by Danny Glover, Soundtrack for a Revolution is a vibrant blend of heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic
images, and thrilling contemporary performances a film of significance, energy and power.

The freedom songs evolved from slave chants, from the labor movement, and especially from the black church. The music enabled blacks to sing words they could not say, and it was crucial in helping the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence.

The acclaimed film was shown at numerous festivals and screenings, and won the Vancouver International Film Festival Rogers People's Choice Award, the Chicago International Film Festival Gold Plaque For Direction, and the Morelia International Film
Festival Audience Award. The film also made the Academy Award® Shortlist, and is a finalist for three International Documentary Associated Awards.

My sister bought this cd from a gas station store,I really enjoyed listening to it with her while we were waiting for our order at the bbq joint. I will be ordering the companion dvd to give to her soon. I told her they aired that dvd on PBS that featured commentary on the songs as they related to the movement,and had the artist performances.

I grew up in the 60's, so l love the freedom songs. This compilation brought them all back, particularly Richie Havens.

After watching the program on PBS I really wanted to have the soundtrack so that I could hear the music often. I like knowing the back story to each of the songs. Very inspirational.

Not the versions of these songs that we sang in the '60's. I had hoped to be reaqlly moved and to be able to sing along.

the movie is absolutely great. The CD is very good, it brings back memories for those of us who lived those interesting times. I only regret all the soundtrack from the movie is not on the CD.
