    This is a historical DVD for all Motown fans...way to long in coming to recognize the "music" behind the voices. We loved it.

  • What a True Story

    A very well done documentary about the unsung hero's of Motown. After watching the video I was lucky enough to see most of these gentlemen in live concert. WHAT A SHOW. This is a must have item for anybody who grew up in the 60's.

    If you have any knowledge of or curiosity about the REAL MUSIC of the past decades, this video set is a must see. As a rabid Motown fan, I was also clueless about the identity of the musicians behind the Motown sound. You will laugh and maybe even cry while watching, but you will be thoroughly entertained and informed. This is truly an invaluable lesson in history. Show it to your kids, so they might get a taste of real music in their lifetimes. I've purchased several copies for friends and they are all captivated by it. Look, listen, learn and enjoy...

    I have been searching for Standing in the Shadows of Motown for months now and I was surprised to find it here and at a great price. Standing in the Shadows of Motown is an outstanding documentary about the hardest working group of musicians in record history. You never think about who was playing behind The Supreemes or The Four Tops, but Barry Gordy put together this group, known as The Funk Brothers, to create that famed "Motown Sound", they have played on more number 1 hits than the Beatles, The Beach Boys, Rolling Stones and Elvis combined. I highly recomend this to any fan of Motown or musical history buff.

  • A Terrific Story with Great Music
    Verified Purchase

    This is an incredible DVD telling the story of Motown and in particulatr the Funk Brothers. A really great tribute to a little known group who produced the greatiest music of Motown. This video has brought back the members of the Funk Brothers and matched them with new fresh vocal talent. Throughout, the performances of the old tunes with new voices will have you chearing and applauding. Highly reccomended to those that love Motown and to those who know very little about Motown.

    Although it is great to know some of the info that come from this selection it only leaves you wanting to see the actual performers that made these songs. Not to take anything from the musicians,but its like something is missing and that something is the Temptations ,Supremes and some of the the other great artist that performed these great cuts. If they had just added some of the performers, this would have been a great dvd, but it just left me wanting more ,but maybe thats what it was suppose to do
