Years ago when I moved to Alabama I had no idea I was moving to a den of music history. Slowly over the years I've discovered how much of a hidden gem "The Shoals" really is.
From being the birth place of the Father of the Blues, W.C. Handy to being a place where The Rolling Stones recorded two of my favorite Stones songs, "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses" the area is rich with music history.
I was really excited this morning when Mike was telling me about a documentary that was going to be played at Sundance, talking all about the history of Muscle Shoals Sound and Fame Recording Studios, [official website for FAME] here in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
So please take some time if you feel like it, and enjoy the preview to this awesome documentary all about the history of the Muscle Shoals Sound.
I hope the movie gets BIG buzz at Sundance, because I'm dying to hear all about Aretha Franklin's recordings, and The Stones, as well as all the greats that changed music history for the ages, and even to hear what Bono has to say about it all [watch the preview in the link above].
Specials thanks to my husband, Mike for sharing the link with me!
