You are of course familiar with the legendary songs "Twist and Shout", "Piece of my Heart" and "Brown Eyed Girl". What you’re not familiar with is the man who inspired them: one of the greatest recording artists of the ‘60s, a man who managed to create 51 global hits in just 7 years. Despite the fact that his artistic trajectory was unluckier than Sixto "Sugarman" Rodriguez’s, now is the time to discover Bert Berns and his adventurous life, as it is meshed with the history of American pop, rock and soul music in a thrilling hour and a half.
