'Standing in the Shadows of Motown'
Where did the love go? According to the eager-to-please documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown," when Berry Gordy moved his company to Los Angeles the love remained in Detroit. Three decades after the music entrepreneur split Motortown, the love continues to tenderly envelop the studio musicians who call themselves the Funk Brothers and whom Gordy unceremoniously left behind.
