Muscle Shoals

Postby Djembe » Fri Jul 18, 2014 1:10 pm

Just watched this great doco on Muscle Shoals. Quite a revelation to see all the albums that were recorded there, and the guys that played on them. All of Aretha Franklin's classic albums, Wilson Picket, Percy Sledge etc played by a bunch of geeky white guys from Alabama in the days of segregation.
It's on Netfix if anybody has access to that.
Strongly recommended.
Here is a trailer.

Yeh, it was great! I've been raving about it for weeks.

It was added to iTunes recently if that helps.

Those geeky Swampers played on everything cool. B-)

Great doco. Could only be improved by removing all traces of Bono.
