This deluxe edition of STANDING IN THE SHADOWS contains new live versions of classic hits sung by today's stars and backed by Motown's house band, the Funk Brothers. Included are four original, previously unreleased tracks from Motown's vaults and a bonus disc containing instrumental versions of the original hits. STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN won the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Album For A Motion Picture Or Television. "What's Going On" (Chaka Khan) won the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance. Personnel: Eddie Willis, Robert White , Joe Messina (guitar); Earl Van Dyke, Joe Hunter , Johnny Griffith (keyboards); Uriel Jones (vibraphone, percussion); Bob Babbitt, James Jamerson (bass guitar); Benny Benjamin, Richard "Pistol" Allen (drums); Eddie Brown (congas); The Funk Brothers. While there was certainly little to complain about on the original issue of the soundtrack for Standing in the Shadows of Motown, for those who truly sought the magic of the Funk Brothers, this deluxe edition is what they longed for all along. This two-disc collection contains the soundtrack of the Allan Slutsky/Harry Weinger film -- plus three bonus tracks -- from that historic night at the Royal Oak Music Theater just outside of Detroit. It pairs what was left of the original Motown session gang and their heirs with a host of vocalists, including Joan Osborne, Chaka Khan, Bootsy Collins, Montell Jordan, Me'Shell Ndeg?Ocello, Ben Harper, and Gerald LeVert interpreting the classics. The extra soundtrack cuts feature John Lee Hooker, Jackie Wilson, and Dennis Coffey with the Detroit Guitar Band. But on disc two, the entire grail becomes attainable. Here are 15 musical tracks, the original instrumental sides from "the Snakepit" of the Motown studios, with little or no vocal accompaniment, remixed from the ground up. The producers broke down and mapped out each verse, bridge, chorus, and vamp on paper first. Phone calls were made to the living members a...

    If you love Motown, then you will love these CDs. You will also enjoy learning the mystery of the never seen musicians behind the famous music that came out of Motown. There isn't a bad song to be heard.

  • Fantastic DVD - History, Love, Music - Loved It!

    My husband and I are 55 and 56 years old. Our high school cafeteria days were filled with the sounds of Motown in the 60's just before the hippie movement exploded. This documentary recreates the musical paths of the Funk Brothers who backed all the great Motown acts. It will teach your children something wonderful about the origins of American popular music and make you marvel at the superb talent of the men & women of soul as they journeyed along. All families, all ages, all races will love this movie. SEE IT! Let this music rock your Saturday night, and you'll be passing the DVD to friends ever after. A beautiful, soulful, rocking education that will have you dancing and singing even if you have no connection to this music!
