Standing in the Shadows of Motown
The story of the Funk Brothers, the group of musicians that played on every single hit Motown record from the label's beginnings to 1972.


From Library Staff

The Funk Brothers were the Motown studio band, playing on hit after hit, but few could name one of their members. This is a mixture of archival footage, interviews with the musicians and their admirers, and new concert footage.
