(July 28, 2004 – Burbank, CA) – On August 20, 1972, more than 100,000 people gathered in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for a seven-hour concert that became a cultural phenomenon known as “The Black Woodstock.” Now, more than 30 years later, Warner Home Video will release “Wattstax – The Special Edition,” the film that documented this historic event. Available on home video for the first time, this 30th anniversary release includes Isaac Hayes’ famous “lost” ending (seen only once, at the 1972 premiere), several audio commentaries, the original theatrical trailer as well as the 2003 Special Edition trailer and additional never-before-seen footage. “Wattstax – The Special Edition” is available on September 7, 2004 for $24.98 SRP.
