Muscle Shoals Documentary

Also on Netflix.

I found this fascinating, a farmer from Alabama…forms one of the most famous studios in music history. Rick Hall, and his group of studio musicians (all white dudes from Bama) helped produce some of the biggest names in the business.

Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Duane Allman recorded there some, and wanted Rick to record the Allman Bros band, but he didn't think it was right for him.

But interesting on some of the more soulful records, like Aretha and Ettas, they were backed by an all white band. Good ole southern boys.

Who says southern white boys don't have soul?
It's not an optical illusion, it just looks like one.
