After a brief tour round the arthouse cinemas, cult music documentary Soul Power will also hit the stores, on both DVD and Blu-ray.

The year was 1974, with a host of black American acts mixing it up with African musicians at a 12-hour, three-night festival in Zaire, playing out alongside the infamous Rumble in the Jungle fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman.

Soul Power is a record of 'Zaire '74', showing both the experiences and performances acts including James Brown, BB King, Bill Withers and Celia Cruz, with the original footage restored in HD with top-notch audio for an 'as if you were there' experience.  Special features for the retail release include a number of extra songs and deleted scenes (that didn't make the cinema version), with the discs hitting the shelves on 16th November 2009. if you want to get in early, Amazon is already doing pre-orders.
