Backup singers live in a world that lies just beyond the spotlight. Their voices bring harmony to the biggest bands in popular music, but we've had no idea who these singers are or what lives they lead, until now.
A documentary feature examining why over 3000 independent record stores have closed across the U.S. in the past decade. Many sources all pose threats on the very well being of our favorite record stores. Will these stores die or will they survive? Written by
there's definitely a story to be told in the every changing world of music delivery and why its changing. This doco touched on a number of key issues but lessened the impact by telling it in loaded language where it could have backed up what it was saying with facts and statistics. Instead we get a lot of conjecture and a picture that makes rock and roll look the un-coolest it ever has. Old men in sweaters talking about the evil empire and days gone by. Maybe that's the story the makers wanted to tell, but then there's the obvious affection for older mediums and the very valid argument of the erosion of community, so we really get mixed messages. This doco doesn't clear up any misconceptions or add much we didn't already know about the decline of the indie record store but at least it gets it all in one place for those new to the topic.
