  • Summary: A fascinating documentary focussing on a group of backing singers who were ubiquitous in the 60's and 70's on some of the biggest tracks of all times.

A film I enjoyed much, but I really love music

  • Excerpt: This is a great film that show us all how being a background signer is a tough job that gets very little recognition. Then again, we all love the songs that they have been on. Many times we see/hear the performers get together and hit the harmony and notes right on as they used to do many years ago.

  • Summary: I didn't see 20 FEET FROM STARDOM in the theater because I thought it would be just a lame VH-1 type doc. And guess what, it is! I finally saw it because it has such Oscar buzz. It's a pretty lame unfocused mess.

  • Summary: I am not that aware of the artists from the old days, but I recognize them by some of hit tracks I know. Since I don't know much about the musics of before 80s, I just enjoyed the stories they told in this documentary.

  • Summary: This doc looks at the women who sing backup for rock and soul acts. There are profiles of some of the greats (Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer) and interviews with lots of women who've joined them. A few rock stars (Springsteen, Jagger, Sting) offer their comments.

  • Summary: This fascinating documentary focuses on the singing careers of 4 or 5 fabulous African American backup singers. Most of them started in the 1960s and were backup singers on some of the most famous records of all time.

  • Summary: Loved this! Entertainment with a message. Great personal stories of the often unknown, but amazing voices, of backing singers, who had all the talent but not the egoes, or perhaps " them breaks" to make it as the BIG ARTISTS. Can these girls sing! Lisa Fischer is a STAR!
