BRILL BUILDING DOCUMENTARY 1999
U.S. Documentary. Excellent quality. 4:3 aspect ratio. Rare vintage TV footage. Excellent documentary on the music period from the mid-50s to mid-60s when white teenagers flocked to black rhythm & blues records and created a whole new record buying market. Labels, publishers and songwriters emerged to provide new product for this market. The Brill Building was a major supplier. Insightful interviews tell the history of the times and the story of how the songs were created.

Interviews include Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller, Steve Lawrence, Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Cynthia Weil, Barry Mann, Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, Don Kirschner, Doc Pomus, Jerry Wexler, Neil Sedaka, Connie Francis, Tom Dowd, Dionne Warwick, Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Shirley Reeves, Steve Tyrell, Little Eva, Lamont Dozier, Phil Ramone, Lesley Gore, Bill Medley, Bobby Vee, Ben E. King, Mary Weiss and many others. Brill Building!
