07.02.14Netflix A doc about background singers, specifically a handful of influential ones from the 50 - 80s. Most of this was good... probably the highlight is hearing the emotional second take of Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter, but then the movie gets into why they don't do their own records, why they never became stars, why they don't get any work anymore, etc. and the movie drags through its last act. It was still mostly good, but reminded me a lot of the Shadows of Motown doc about the session musicians... except that movie seemed to have a bit more dignity to it.
