In 2003 an all-star cast of gospel singers took Bob Dylan's gospel compositions and created a Grammy-nominated album. 'Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan' features roof-raising performances by these spirited artists while documenting the making of the album of the same name. 'Gotta Serve Somebody' interweaves bracing reinterpretations with interviews of these celebrated gospel artists. It also presents commentary by musicians including Jim Keltner, Spooner Oldham, Fred Tackett, and Regina McCrary - who recorded and performed with Bob Dylan during his gospel period. Legendary record producer Jerry Wexler and respected music journalists Paul Williams and Alan Light also offer insights on this fascinating body of work. This musical documentary premieres 1980 footage of Bob Dylan performing "When He Returns" as the first archival performance released from this important era.
