Summary:
In an office building a few blocks from Times Square, a group of talented teens rewrote the soundtrack to the American experience. The string of chart-topping melodies they penned earned the Brill Building the nickname "The Hit Factory." Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick and Bobby Darin are among the legends who passed through its doors. "You've Lost that Lovin' Feeling, " "Up on a Roof, " and "Hound Dog" are just a few of the hits that came pouring out. This unprecedented look at "Teen Pan Alley" includes in-depth portraits of some of the biggest names in the business, along with a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the heady days when the Brill Building was the center of the pop universe. A treasure trove of unforgettable songs, rare photos and interviews with everyone from Carole King to Phil Ramone makes this the definitive story of a musical revolution.
