STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN: Wow–what a movie! Nina and I saw it at the Camera Three in San Jose, with a very small audience of die-hard Motown fanatics. If this film is playing near you, and you care at all about the wonderful music released on the Motown label, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Here’s Roger Ebert’s review of the film, and here’s Eric Olsen’s.

Particularly recommended to fans Motown’s late, legendary bassist, James Jamerson.

UPDATE: And here’s an article about one of Motown’s recording engineers, Bob Olhsson.
