In 1972, a thriving Seattle soul music scene was on the verge of national recognition. In 1975, almost suddenly, the scene died and was quickly forgotten by the changing city. In 2001, after the chance discovery of a 45-record, a local DJ uncovers a rich past hidden in plain view.
Narrated by Sir Mix-A-Lot. Features interviews with musicians from the time as well as commentary with Quincy Jones, Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Ben Shepherd (Soundgarden), Ben Gibbard (Postal Service/Death Cab for Cutie).
