Muscle Shoals Documentary

Recommended Posts

...... COMING SOON .........

           Muscle Shoals (director Greg “Freddy Camalier)
A new documentary that has the impact of a musical freight train, Muscle Shoals chronicles the men and stars behind Fame Recording Studios in the small Alabama town called Muscle Shoals. Narrated by Bono (watch his talk, “The good news on poverty”), Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys and others, the film features interviews with founder Rick Hall and his surprising back-up band, The Swampers, a group of local white teenagers. They looked, as the film says, like they worked at Walmart, but found within themselves the miraculous ability to endow singers like Franklin — not to mention bands from the Stones to Traffic – with a missing ingredient called soul. The Swampers eventually become Hall’s rivals, but the film wraps the whole story in glorious music and feel-good imagery. This Southern place exudes a special charm keyed to the rhythms of the Tennessee River and its green fields. Less known than it should be to music lovers, Muscle Shoals documents a center of the music scene that rivals Motown.

I've seen it already, with my pal Tony Rounce, courtesy of Ady Croasdell, who couldn't make it. A case of his unfortunate loss was most definitely my gain.  :wink:

I have to say, it was brilliant. Do NOT miss this, it's a MUST SEE documentary that leaves you hypnotised.  :thumbsup:

I wouldn't mind watching it again to be honest.
