If you have ever wondered why some back vocalists have better-sounding and stronger voices than the leads and yet are still in the shadows - this is the documentary for you. It is truly fascinating that people with voices like Lisa Fischer - not to mentioned her personality, a Grammy and killer looks back in the day - did not become an international superstar.

How does it happen? Some of them never tried, some tried and failed, some are trying now - the variations are endless. As a friend of mine put it - 'have to be in the right place at the right time, innit?' - and he may be right!

But successful or not in their solo careers - these ladies (and some gentlemen) are responsible for contributing to some of the best sounding records in the world. And although this film is a bit slow-paced, still highly recommend it as a must for music lovers.
