    Brings me back to my High School days, in Southern California, in the 1970’s. Most of those days, you heard Beach Boys & Chicago. What an amazing time for fantastic & gifted musicians!

    My question is, didn't these groups have to lay down the vocals? So did this happen after the Crew laid down the instrumental tracks?

    This is why today’s music can’t hold a candle to the music of the 60s and 70s.

    I remember wearing out my copy of Good Vibrations it was so killer… this is so very, very seminal since now in 2020 we have lost so many of the people interviewed here…

    What a great documentary on the unsung (no pun intended) musicians behind the soundtrack of more than one generation. As a lover of music and history this was a great blend of both.

    The Beautiful woman in the middle of the singing group The Platters has to be Frankie Lylin's wife! Halle Berry did her Justice in the film "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?"

    All bands are fake, folks. The J EW used these musicians to put stupid messages into your heads.

    I got the great opportunity to see Tommy Tedesco at a workshop in Nashville in the '80s. I especially remember one story where he was talking about the fact that most people didn't know how to write guitar parts. He handed out copies of one such part & asked us if we saw something wrong. He then pointed out that the very first chord had 7 notes! On the session he played whatever he wanted knowing these folks were clueless & of course they loved it:>)

    This is such an amazing tribute to such amazing musicians and quality people. I grew up listening to most of this music, but never realized that it was a core group of musicians making such a wide variety of sounds. Thank You. I like that, very much. Give more than You take. Thank You.

    Wow, this is a spectacular documentary, I just can't thank everyone involved enough! There is so much wonderful information, passion, talent and fun packed into this hour and 41 minutes that I might have to watch it again. I've known vaguely about session musicians, mostly through reading about the Muscle Shoals days and this was a real treat. Now I know who created all the fabulous background sound for my adolescent dream-hits. The research that went into this…well, these people are in the national treasure category. Much gratitude from Oregon!💓

    One of the most wonderful things I’ve watched in a long time. It truly brought the music to life. The musicians are amazing and all of them come across as at least as good humans as they were players. With respect, Tommy Tedesco is an absolute kick in the ass. Thank you for this film.

    Was this really American or done for a foreign money power as were the Beatles according to the Sage of Quay Michael Williams? These musicians were boss absolutely! One group played on all these drummed up acts and I feel cheated. MoTown was a different model but when Gordy moved from Detroit to LA, this same foreign money power that is Hollywood turned it into LGBT Michael Jackson Diana Ross mush. That must have been the plan. Gordy made a killing and they killed off all the talent as they continue to do across the boards.

    These were the bands and musicians that got forgotten, in the one of the most amazing musical eras of music. Hell everyone was in a band or wanted to be even myself. But these people were great. A few of them came out of the studio, Jimi Hendrix, and Glen Campbell, Jimmy Page. So hats off to the real rockers of Rock-n-roll.

    Denny, Meet you at a preview showing, Aurora, IL. some years ago already. Still love what you've done getting this project out there. You we're very nice to us taking a few minutes to chat with us after the showing. Appreciated it immensely! Just wanted to say, Thanks! And hope you are doing well in this terrible climate we're all in at the moment. I know many things are on hold or cancelled, but wish you well. You're a good man!

    These guys and gals were the West Coast Beatles. They knew how to read music (most of them) and they could play any way you wanted them to. It was so weird back in those days to have the Beatles be at #2 with some song and at #1 would be "Whatever Shape Your Stomach's In." There were all these wild songs coming out at the same time rock and roll was digging in. Crazy times. Then bands began doing their own stuff and they didn't need studio musicians for that. These guys deserve all the credit they've never been given.
