Various - Wattstax, The Living Word mp3 album

Wattstax redux - this fat double album is a second slice of the Stax label experience. Recorded at the Los Angeles Coliseum in the summer of 1972 during the label's day-long festival, Wattstax 2 completes a comprehensive highlight of the whole experience. Because, although it's drawn from the same source as its predecessor, the album has an entirely different tone. What sets Wattstax 2 aside from 1 is the inclusion of the day's spoken word performances.

How many modern listeners have the time to sit and play a double-LP of a live gig? Perhaps we should make time. Despite the hype afforded to innumerable festivals these days, none offer the power, heart and sense of unity and purpose of this one-off event. You didn’t have to be there to feel it: Stax captured it to bring the soul straight to your home.

The Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album has been awarded since 1959. The award had several minor name changes: In 1959 the award was known as Best Performance, Documentary or Spoken Word. From 1960 to 1961 it was awarded as Best Performance – Documentary or Spoken Word (other than comedy). From 1962 to 1963 it was awarded as Best Documentary or Spoken Word Recording (other than comedy). From 1964 to 1965 it was awarded as Best Documentary, Spoken Word or Drama Recording (other than comedy).
