The documentary “Muscle Shoals” took a journey through some of America’s greatest music and its’ connection to a town called Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Artists such as Wilson Pickett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Aretha Franklin, and Etta James all cut some of their best records at a studio in Muscle Shoals. This place took on a magical quality for music and it remains legendary with blues and r&b musicians, yet this place has gone largely unnoticed by the public. I think everyone who likes music should check out this great story, it made me feel connected to the great 50’s and 60’s music that I love so much. The musicians who played there transcended color barriers, both white and black musicians respected each other and changed the world by working together. The scene in muscle shoals owes everything to Rick Hall. He dedicated his life to music and helped produced many great records with some of the greatest artists of American history. It was great to see him and his band at the premiere and watch their story. The director said he had so much more to tell than he was allowed in a 2 hour movie. I encourage everyone to see this movie or if not find out some more about the town of Muscle Shoals. The movie highlighted the natural beauty of this town as well as its’ magical history, making the music seem even more special to me.
