Great Moments in Rock DVD History

 One of my favorite rock DVDs is Standing in the Shadows of Motown, a fantastic documentary about the Funk Brothers, a group of Detroit musicians who backed up dozens of Motown artists and truly created the Detroit Sound.

This one hour and forty-eight minute documentary features archival footage and still photos, interviews and twelve new live performances of Motown classics with the Funk Brothers backing up Chaka Khan, Ben Harper, Bootsy Collins, Montell Jordan, Meshell Ndegeocello, Joan Osborne, and Gerald Levert.

An excellent film from start to finish but the real show-stopper was Joan Osborne belting out Jimmy Ruffin’s What Becomes of the Broken Hearted. Incredible!
