And the colored girls go:

Who were the backup singers on Lou Reeds "Walk on a Wild Side"? Who was the gospel singer who roared the famous lines "Rape, murder; it's just a shot away" on The Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter? This wonderful documentary puts a face to some of the most important – yet still marginal – voices in the history of popular music. We get to meet the many talented Afro-American women who contributed on the most famous and durable hits in rock and roll music, without getting their well deserved credit.
