“Get Ready”: This Hi De Ho homage to the great American soul labels, curated by music-meister John Goddard from his personal video collection, promises to inspire “R-E-S-P-E-C-T”-and not “just a little bit!” Goddard, our great guru of the groove, continues his exploration of the pop explosions of the ’60s, that time unforgettable for rock and pop, blues and funk, and a whole lotta soul. While the Beatles were making waves across the Atlantic Ocean, Atlantic Records-along with Motown and Stax-was making sure the airwaves weren’t completely invaded by Liverpudlians. Americans were redefining soul, with a “Back at ’Cha” channeled through brilliant artists like Wilson Pickett, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, Carla Thomas, The Supremes, The Temptations, The Rascals, and Otis Redding. Their stunning musical legacy may have left some one-hit Brits wondering “Where Did Our Love Go?”-yet it united young people across boundaries of race and place. Put on those “Hi-Heel Sneakers,” “Hitch Hike” on over, and celebrate the greats!
