Overview

An all-star cast of gospel singers transforms legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan's gospel compositions into the Grammy-nominated 2003 album Gotta Serve Somebody, and cameras are there to catch all the musical magic as it happens. As a group of dedicated gospel musicians step into the studio to record brand new interpretations of such Dylan classics as "Pressing On" and "When He Returns," interviews with the artists and live performance footage offer an intimate look at the hard work and dedication that went into this landmark production. Commentary by Dylan contemporaries Jim Keltner and Regina McCrary, producer Jerry Wexler, and music journalists Alan Light and Paul Williams offer even greater insight into the creative force that drove Dylan's gospel period, with additional performance footage of Dylan singing "When He Returns" in 1980 offering fans a firsthand look at one of the songs that inspired the Gotta Serve Somebody album.
