Let nothing I post diminish the fact that this film has had a tremendous impact in giving credit to an unsong group of musicians whose credit was 30+ years overdue. I love Dr. Licks for what he's done and have the utmost respect for him. What I'm wondering, is why did Berry Gordy have almost nothing to do with the film? The credits site him as a "contributor," but he was not interviewed, nor do you get the impression that he contributed anything more than legal rights to information, music, or photos. While I'm sure Berry Gordy was aware of the enormous importance, (far moreso than the artists themselves), of his musicians, writers, and producers, he has, up to this point, failed to give them their due. The perfect opportunity arose, and instead of establishing a presence that showed him as appreciative and fortunate, he was completely absent. Why? Is there that sort of rift between Gordy and the Funk Brothers? Also, why were so few artists from that period interviewed. Blackbird and I were trying to think of those major artists that are still with us, including Smokey Robinson, (I think), Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Otis Williams, Diana Ross, and more. None of these artists, (save for an old Stevie clip), appear. Why not?
