| This wonderful documentary reveals the true story of
how certain R&B legends managed to survive through the 30 years of
evolution in the music industry since the glory days of R&B. Heavy
metal, Rock and Roll and Rap all owe their very existence to the legends that are showcased in this film.
Chris Hegedus (Startup.com, The War Room) and D. A. Pennebaker (Don't Look Back, The War Room) using interviews and performance footage by such Motown legends as Isaac Hayes (Shaft), Sam Moore (Soul Man), Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), the Chi-Lites, Jerry Butler and Rufus Thomas
have captured the raw energy and storytelling of an era in music
history that shaped the path of rhythm and blues period which ended in
the early '70's.
