  • Sometimes it's racism; sometimes bum luck; sometimes it's producer Phil Spector putting Love's voice in another singer's mouth. You watch. You hear the gospel spoken in the voices of these women. And you marvel. show more

    I left the theatre feeling better about myself. This movie was so moving. It\'s a finger snapping, ear to ear grinning, joyful walk through the soul of american music. Sometimes rejoicing, always engrossing and ever triumphant. One of the BEST movie experiences ever!

    This is an outstanding documentary. If you have any interest in music from the late 60\'s, you will love this movie.

    A powerful reminder of who you know and where you are at a given time that can determine your rise to the top, not necessarily how good you are.
