There's nothing surprising here. The familiar story of artists who are drawn into a maze of deceit and exploitation only to find themselves on the outside looking in and badly in debt. The interesting twist is how individuals tried to market themselves in false names to the degree that they actually believed in the deceptions! Very well crafted and amazingly revealing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I was hip to some of the things mentioned in the documentary, like musicians calling home needing cash because they hadn't gotten paid, but getting the full story straight from the headliners Master Gee and Wonder Mike of how they were treated and their struggle to regain their brand, their ability to make a living, their names...priceless!

Surprised by the behind the scenes fighting, deceit and corruption. Changed my opinion of Sylvia Robinson, I'll leave it at that. How can you appropriate someone else's work as your own just for the money? Those of us that know who the Sugarhill Gang were and are, know better. The judge in the case half-assed the decision and while they were able to recoup their individual names, they still got robbed.

I enjoyed the DVD, but its the same old scam that the entertainment industry always seems to pull on young talent that hasn't learned the financial end of the game, you hate to see this happen but there is an old saying that goes don't run around with your nose all snotty, if you don't know something you ought to ask somebody. I was glad to see them not give up, and they kept on till they got their names , but they also took the song GOOD TIMES without permission. A good DVD on what not to do in the recording industry
