(2017, DCP, 84m) dir Brent Wilson. An entertaining journey through bands, songs, and harmonies that evoke both days gone by as well as current hits, Streetlight Harmonies uncovers a definitive period of music and the artists that defined it. Doo Wop, featuring stellar vocal harmonies sung a cappella, was born on street corners in the 1950s. soon, the Coasters, The Drifters and Frankie Valli were singing their hearts out to America on Alan Freed’s influential radio show. In Streetlight Harmonies, a who’s who of musicians trace the evolution of American pop music from Doo Wop and Phil Spector’s legendary ‘wall of sound’ up through Motown, surf music and the British Invasion. It’s a toe-tapping stroll down memory lane for music lovers of all ages. Millions know the music but few know the artists and their history that laid the foundation for Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, and built a bridge to the Civil Rights Movement.
