Unluckily not very much is said about his life and how he started in his music career which is imho relevant to his singing. The quality is "ok", too bad that they stuffed in Sam & Dave shows (wtf?) and that during "Try a little tenderness" you can't see him singing actually, only videocaps on people on the festival grounds.
Many songs and details about Otis are not shown and I am still looking for a more documentary style video about Otis. Still for any Soul afficionados this is a definite buy.
