Below, CarterMatt has the full American Soul season 2 episode 5 synopsis with some more news as to what’s coming up next:
On the eve of their performance of “Soul Train,” James Brown loses his best musicians Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker; Don and Gerald learn a lesson in humility.
This is one of those episodes that should give you all the more insight into what the Soul Train world was really like. While it may be a fictional re-telling in a lot of ways, we do have a feeling that the goal is still to keep things as authentic as possible. Beyond just a lesson in music history, there’s also an opportunity in here to dive into some television history. You’re talking here about something super-iconic to the medium, but also a great underdog story. It was not even remotely easy to get this show the advertising and the support that it needed. There is a lot of relevancy to that to what’s going on in the real world today and we hope that American Soul does a great job of working to echo that further.
The good news is this — we still have a lot of great opportunities to see stories told over the next few weeks. We’re looking forward to a few more big-name artists being presented through the show’s lens.
