Picture from Standing in the Shadows of Motown


Ever wonder what made that Motown sound so distinctive? This documentary looks at the The Funk Brothers, a group of session musicians who gave birth to many hit songs and artists' careers, but who somehow never managed to receive any of the fame or recognition they deserved. If you like to listen to Motown, or think you know anything about popular music, you owe it to these guys to hear their story.
