4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack, even better movie. 11 July 2013
By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Just this past weekend I saw the documentary "20 Feet From Stardom" (more on that later) and I immediately had to check out the soundtrack of it.

"20 Feet From Stardom - Music from the Motion Picture" (13 tracks; 49 min.) brings a fine collection of the songs that we see and hear in the movie, starting with Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" (who can forget that famous "do-dodo-dodo" outro at the end of that song. I'm very happy that the Talking Heads song is also included, please note that this is the live version of "Slippery People" from "Stop Making Sense" (as seen in this documentary), just a great moment. "He's a Rebel" by the Crystals is another key moment in the documentary. Merry Clayton, one of the main singers featured in the movie, gets two songs here, including the Stones cover "Gimme Shelter" from an early 70s solo album, and the Neil Young cover "Southern Man". David Bowie's "Young Americans" is another key moment in the movie, and very happy that it's included. Judith Hill, another featured singer, brings an original track, a pointed piano ballad "Desperation". The album closes with a new cover of "Lean on Me", featuring the afore-mentioned Clayton and Hill and also Darlene Love and Jo Lawry. In all, this is quite the album!

As to the movie itself, I am surprised that Amazon.com does not have a listing for it yet as a future DVD release, as it usually does for movies currently in the theatre. "20 Feet From Stardom" (2013 release; 91 min.), director Morgan Neville brings a great look into the importance of the backup singers in rock and roll and R&B.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recognition At Last 3 April 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Having just seen the film and been overwhelmed by the people I have loved for so long finally being acknowledged by the greater population I just had to buy the soundtrack. However for me personally this is not the selection I would have included but for the general populace I am sure it will be entertaining. I have to admit I only bought it for the new Darlene Love and Merry Clayton tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unecessary chatter 20 Jun 2014
By bedfire
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Why did they include an unedited version of "A fine fine man " ? It really spoils what is a good song and does nothing to improve an otherwise excellent album .The production engineer's advice to Darleen Love is very irritating and totally unnecessary. Less is more.

Had heard a couple of tracks on the radio that I didn't have in my CD collection and started to research them. Found them both on here plus some other lovely songs.

As to the movie itself, I am surprised that Amazon does not have a listing for it yet as a future DVD release, as it usually does for movies currently in the theatre. "20 Feet From Stardom" (2013 release; 91 min.), director Morgan Neville brings a great look into the importance of the backup singers in rock and roll and R&B. There is an enjoyable mix of interviews of "big names" (the movie opens with insights from none other than Bruce Springsteen himself, later on Mick Jagger provides comments as well), along with archive footage, and then focusing on 4 famously un-famous backup singers both from the old days (Merry Clayton, Darlene Love, Tata Vega) and more recently (Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill). Did you know that one of those songers won a Grammy? If you wonder who, just watch! The best moment in the documentary comes when we see a discussion about the backup singers of Luther Vandross, only then to learn that Vandross himself started out as a back-up singer for David Bowie! Best of all, the documentary give us archive footage of this (when Bowie went through his soul period on the "Young Americans" album). The person who comes out worst in this documentary is Phil "Wall of Sound" Spector. If you wonder why, just watch! The bigger question relating to those obviously talented singers is why did they not make it big while other less talented singers did? Stevie Wonder comments that "it's not a matter of talent, it's luck and circumstances" and Springsteen says the same but in different words. Bottom line: I enjoyed the documentary quite a bit. It's a slice of life in the music business that we the fans know little about, and Neville has put together an entertaining documentary that also gives some bigger lessons in life. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Darlene Love is great but the background singers remain nameless again. 20 Aug 2013
By ibekeen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The CD sounds great and the new Darlene Love performance of "Lean on Me" is the best track. Also enjoyed the studio chatter between Darlene and Phil Spector before "Fine Fine Boy".

However, asuming you have seen the movie, you may find it ironic that the CD booklet was slapped together and once again the background singers do not get any credit! Who sang background on "Slippery People" by the Talking Heads or "Young Americans" by David Bowie? You will not find out in the booklet!! None of the photos are tagged too. Just a bunch of pictures of nameless background singers.

Disc Grade: 5 Stars.
Booklet Grade: 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Girl Group Sounds ! 25 Jun 2013
By K. Nolting - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD. Darlene Love is my favorite on it, though all are very good. He's A Rebel is a wonderful sparkling version of the 1962 hit. A Fine, Fine Boy has some interesting studio chatter where Darlene is learning the phrasing the producer wants her to use. The new track Lean On Me is wonderful. You can hear the church in Darlene's voice on this one. Finally got to see this in the theatre when it got to my town. Don't miss this film. T'ata Vega will thrill you with the soul in her voice. The best music documentary that I have ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you feel as good as the movie! 15 Sep 2013
By acuaustin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is great! Of course, the movie is awesome...I laughed, boogied and sadly even cried at times. The CD captures the essence of the film...these incredible women providing the "soul" for these white male singers, the women's background in gospel being so important to their sound, Darlene Love and the Blossoms' version of "He's a Rebel" being lipsynched by the Crystals, another creepy Phil Spector reference I suppose making Darlene Love get it just right that "he's a fine, fine boy" and a nice song by Judith Hill (The Voice finalist) who we'll be hearing more from I'm sure. The only thing I miss is Lisa Fischer and her incredible range when in the studio with Sting.

4.0 out of 5 stars 20 Feet From Complete 3 Sep 2013
By Eliaz McMillan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My only criticism of this soundtrack is that it's not bigger, more inclusive, but I can understand why it isn't; the actual soundtrack to this documentary would be multiple discs worth of music. This soundtrack at least manages to hit the high points, and I enjoy every minute.
If you loved the film, as I did, you should enjoy this music.
