This is a DVD with two seperate TV documentaries. The first one, offering an insight into Daddy G’s favourite musical moments from his youth. The other one, a general overview of how soul and black-orientated music has seaped into and changed the British music scene from the earlier eighties onwards, at times touching on the Bristol soundsystem scene and covering the earlier Massive Attack sound.
