I saw the movie Dreamgirls the other day and was pleasantly surprised! The music was fabulous and fit perfectly within the story. Jennifer Hudson's voice is so packed with emotion it'll take your breath away. I especially liked the hairdos and costumes that recreated the sixties and the seventies.
You too can enjoy the music of Dreamgirls by borrowing the soundtrack from the library [CD SOUNDTRACK DRE].
If you want to read about and listen to the original music and culture of the period, look for these items:
Berry, Gordy. To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown: An Autobiography [B GOR].
Hine, Thomas. Populuxe [973.92 HIN].
Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971 [CD SOUL HIT]
The 1970s [973.92 NIN].
Rielly, Edward J. The 1960s [973.923 RIE].
