Paul Justman’s inspiring documentary pays tribute to one of the most influential, yet unrecognised, collection of musicians that has ever been assembled. The Funk Brothers played the background music on the seemingly endless string of Motown classics in the 1960s and 1970s, resulting in them having more number one hits than The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, and Elvis Presley combined. Standing in the shadows of Motown reunites the surviving members as they reflect on the groups’ storied past and gives overdue credit to a group of unassuming musicians who quietly created one of popular music’s most enduring and spectacular musical legacies.
