What emerges is a vision of popular music as the product of a complex combination of landscapes and cultures; much time is devoted to the natural echo of work songs and the innate musicality of bodies of water.

If you want to bob your head along to a jukebox sampler of glorious American songs, then MUSCLE SHOALS is the documentary for you.

Rating: 4/5 -- Hall's backstory, riddled with tragedy, gets the proper attention and respect here. But it's the music that won't let you stop watching. Full Review

There is an over-reliance on commentary by platitude-spouting rock stars...but the film's great virtue is that it will introduce and remind viewers of the wonderfully varied trove of music that came out of these studios. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Greg "Freddy" Camalier tells the story of Muscle Shoals, AL, home of FAME Studios and its legendary owner Rick Hall -- who helped to make some of the greatest records in rock-and-roll history. Rising up through poverty, Hall sensed that he was onto something big when he opened FAME Studios. He couldn't have been more right, either, because not only is Muscle Shoals one of those sacred locations where music seems to simply blow in the breeze, but the best artists of the era would soon be pounding a path to his door in hopes of recording there. Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Paul Simon recorded some of their very best work at FAME Studios, and now music lovers don't have to book a flight to Muscle Shoals in order to experience this magical, once-in-a-lifetime story for themselves.
