CLASSIC ALBUMS: AMY WINEHOUSE - BACK TO BLACK

Amy Winehouse - Back To Black

Classic Albums is a British documentary series looking at the creation of some classic poprock and heavy metal albums that are considered the best or most distinctive of a well-known band or musician or that exemplify a stage in the history of music.

 

Back to Black is the second and final studio album by singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse, and it propelled her onto the world stage. It was released in October 2006, and the album spawned five singles: "Rehab", "You Know I'm No Good", "Back to Black", "Tears Dry on Their Own" and "Love Is a Losing Game".

 

Music critics praised Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson's production, as well as Winehouse's songwriting and emotive singing style, and the acclaimed album has sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

 

This film reveals the untold story of the makings of Back to Black and how it evolved, through the words of producers Ronson and Remi who play back songs, which are then blended with the original recording. Using unseen home-movie footage from the Miami and New York recording sessions, it offers fresh insights into Amy’s unique gifts as a singer/songwriter and into the emotional turmoil driving her songs. 

Also featured are musicians who made the original recordings focusing on how the music was composed, including the Dap-Kings band, Amy’s colleagues and friends, and Ronnie Spector.
