    Whether you be an old-timer who was weened on motown or a youngster who digs the old school sound of Detriot, I just watched a movie on Showtime on Demand that I would have to classify a MUST SEE

    The Funk Brothers

    My friends, this will teach you more about Hitsville {i.e. Motown} than you can ever dream of knowing

    After watching this film you will realize how little you actually know about a sound that once swept this country like a tidal wave

    Personally I love the Motown sound ... I've loved it all my life ... but never for one second did I stop to consider the men who actually created that wonderful sound

    Now this film is laced with Motown hits ... some incredible live performances ... but it is so much more than that

    This film is history ... it has finally placed the history of Motown in it's proper context, and the men who created the sound were finally given their just due

    Again, if you enjoy the Motown sound ... young or old ... this film is a MUST SEE

    PS. I know muh-man Bitonti will be on this

    Sounds great. I am as white as they come but I love good music. The bad thing is I don't think too many people have showtime. Maybe I can call the cable company and make them give me a "deal" for 3 months!

    Gainzo, I'm white too ... but Motown was the $hit

    For nearly twenty years all they did was crank out hit after hit ... their #1 records might have numbered in the hundreds

    Yes it was. Detroit (where is Guns?) back in the day was fantastic. So many great tunes.

    My uncle used to work for Motown, so he got me into it big time. In one regard I am glad he did so because I have heard some unbelievable stuff, but its also tough being 19 and having my friends listen to whats on the radio now...utter crap.

    Not sure where you guys live, but theres an NPR out of Newark on the 88.3 dial. On Sunday mornings they have a show rhythm review and plays some serious stuff. A few weeks ago they had a real rare track of David Ruffin doing "I Want You Back." Blows R.Kelly and Usher out of the water. I can hear this station in New York but I am not sure everyone can get it.
