Artist Film Series
Muscle Shoals A documentary that celebrates Rick Hall, the founder of FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and the signature sound he developed in songs such as “I’ll Take You There”, “Brown Sugar”, and “When a Man Loves a Woman”.
Directed by Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier
Rolling Stone said “the documentary’s real highlights are the musings of the musicians who recorded there. Performers including Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Cliff, Ed King and Steve Winwood reflect on what went into creating the magical environment and the legendary recordings that it spawned. Artists were not only prolific in Colbert County, but their recordings were often infused with a recognizable sound Camalier describes as a “funky, soulful, propulsive kind of groove.”
Also featuring Etta James, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Gregg Allman, Spooner Oldham, Dan Penn, Bono, Clarence Carter and Keith Richards.
Film followed by a group dialogue.
