Okay, so you know the voice and the name but, like me, probably not much else - except that he died about 10 years ago.
This 2006 documentary produced by EagleVision and the UK's Channel 4 TV will tell you more than you'll ever want to know about the man. Using lots of archival footage of performances (mostly from a concert in Belgium), and narration from White himself for the first half of this 70 minute documentary, the producers have put together a complete picture of this artist beginning with his criminal record in his teens to the fight over access to him by his family in his last weeks of life. (Shades of the Anna Nicole Smith fiasco). We learn that his Business manager had his Power of Attorney and would not let his wife (they were separated) and children see him as he was dying.
Yep, mixed in with the music (no really complete performances) and comments on his music from Gamble & Huff and Smokey Robinson, among others, is a sad story. The bonus features are limited to 18 minutes of outtakes of partial performances and interviews.
Nicely done, it's definitely worth watching. It might have been improved by complete Music Videos that White produced to watch on repeated viewing.
But it's certainly priced right.

Great documentary about life generally.
