Shout! Factory will release a three-CD boxed set titled "Superstars of Seventies Soul" on March 2. Comprised of 60 hits from the post-Motown era of funk and R&B, the set doubles as a companion piece to a PBS concert special by the same title and hosted by Patti LaBelle.

Premiering in March as a pledge drive event, the special was produced by TJL Productions in association with Shout! Factory. Featured performers include the Commodores, the Chi-Lites, and the Emotions. A DVD version of "Superstars of Seventies Soul" is due later this year.
