"Watched : 27.5.2011 (YLE Teema) Dokumentti Funk Brothers nimisestä livebändistä joka oli joka Motown artistien taustalla soittamasa ja luomasa saundia mutta jääivät huomiota vailla. Hienoja musikkiesityksiä ja hauskoja tarinoita"

The Decade's Best Movies About Music (19 movies items)

"Part documentary, part reunion concert, it’s a celebration of the real heroes of Motown: the session musicians collectively known as The Funk Brothers that include (among others) Richard “Pistol” Allen, Eddie Willis, Earl Van Dyke and James Jamerson, who for 13 years provided the music for such luminaries as Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Diana Ross & the Supremes and Smokey Robinson."

"Digibox, 1st viewing Nice document about The Soul Brothers - the band behind numerous Motown hit songs. James Jamerson is the man."
