Historic Music and Universal Music Group International are proud to announce the May 5th 2008 release of the performance-documentary 'THE ORIGINAL SOUL MEN: SAM AND DAVE'. The two-hour plus DVD tells the story of two legendary singer, Sam Moore and Dave Prater, through their early years as young Gospel performers who, under the spell of Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, abandon the church to form the greatest Soul Duo of all time.
The story is told with the help of 22 complete vintage concert and television performances from 1966-80, as well as an incredible performance of Sam Moore filmed in Japan in 2007.
Also featured in the film is an extensive interview with SAM MOORE ("Sam") who traces his early career as a Gospel performer in Miami, Florida - where he met Dave Prater (Dave) at a Talent Contest he was hosting at the legendary ACE OF HEARTS nightclub - through to the hit years touring with the likes of OTIS REDDING, BOOKER T & THE MGs and THE STAX REVIEW.
Sam explores his career in detail and shares many anecdotes, all of which are presented in THE ORIGINAL SOUL MEN: SAM AND DAVE for the first time. Also interviewed is ROSEMARY PRATER, the wife of DAVE PRATER, DAN AYKROYD and PAUL SHAFFER who discuss the profound influence they garnered from SAM AND DAVE and how that influence helped guide them in creating the persona of the legendary BLUES BROTHERS with JOHN BELUSHI.
