    Just in time for the New Year, Fox Home Entertainment has announced two new waves of catalog reissues and DVD debuts. To celebrate Black History Month, Fox will repromote seven library faves (no new features or specs), all priced at $19.95: Light It Up, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Carmen Jones, Men of Honor, Waiting to Exhale, Soul Food: Special Edition, and The Five Heartbeats. Fox will also issue first-ever DVD releases of the drama Sugar Hill and the classic Claudine. Each features an anamorphic widescreen transfer and trailers, plus additional extras: a making-of featurette on Sugar Hill, and an audio commentary by James Earl Jones, Diahann Carroll, Spike Lee, George Tillman Jr., and Dan Pine on Claudine. Retail is also $19.95 each.

    Has anyone ever seen The Gospel at Colonus? A very good version of Greek tragedy, with Morgan Freeman leading. Many black vocal groups and performers in it, as I recall.

    Probably from the 1970's, and would be an excellent program for DVD issue.

    Wow- Claudine has been a much-requested title where I work, and hasn't been commercially released on any format before!
