Always good to see the real musicians behind the music. I thought the film could have used some archival footage or photos to place the musicians with the recording artists. They had the remaining band members perform some of their great hits withe contemporay artists such as Bootsy Collins, Joan Osborne, Ben Harper, Chaka Khan but no one can really recreate Marvin Gaye.

Full of heart and humor, this documentary gives the viewer deep insight into the real workings of the Motown Sound. A must-see for any Motown lover, and for anyone who enjoys music!
