Clive Davis Film Opens Today in NY, LA, Digital Soundtrack Features Rare Natalie Cole-Whitney Houston Track

Share

OK, no one sent a press release but I figured this out on my own. If you buy the very nicely priced iTunes only-Apple Music soundtrack to “Clive Davis: Soundtrack of Our Lives” you get three rare recordings– Natalie Cole and Whitney Houston performing “This Will Be,” Aretha Franklin performing “I Knew You Were Waiting for Me” plus a never heard before Whitney Houston demo. The iTunes album is available today for $13.99. A shorter digital album goes to Spotify on Friday.

The movie “Soundtrack of Our Lives” opens today apparently in Los Angeles and New York. On October 3rd Chris Perkel’s documentary goes to iTunes and Apple Music exclusively. I assume one day there will be a DVD. There has to be as this is really the story of pop music as we know it. If you love music or were ever interested in the record business, this is a permanent chronicle of how pop music invaded the culture.

Last night there was a premiere screening and party in Los Angeles. Details to come…
