In 1959, Berry Gordy Jr. gathered the best musicians from Detroit's thriving jazz and blues scene to begin cutting songs for his new record company. Over a fourteen year period they were the heartbeat on every hit from Motown's Detroit era. By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians had played on more number ones hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Beatles combined - which makes them the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music. They called themselves the Funk Brothers. Forty-one years after they played their first note on a Motown record and three decades since they were all together, the Funk Brothers reunited back in Detroit to play their music and tell their unforgettable story, with the help of archival footage, still photos, narration, interviews, re-creation scenes, 20 Motown master tracks, and twelve new live performances of Motown classics with the Brothers backing up contemporary performers.Standing in the Shadows of Motown featuring Richard 'Pistol' Allen and Jack Ashford is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Hulu, streaming on Epix, and 6 others. It's a documentary and independent movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 91% and a high IMDb audience rating of 7.8 (3,331 votes).
