  1. mpho3's rating of the film Muscle Shoals

    A really fun, quirky story about the little town of Muscle Shoals, Ala., home of not one but two famed music studios: Rick Hall's FAME and the Swampers' Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. All around it's a tale made for Hollywood, but I'm glad it's a docu instead. Incredible anecdotes about incredible music and artists - Wilson Picket, Aretha, Duane Allman, Lynard Skynard to name a few. Beautifully filmed too.

  2. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Muscle Shoals

    Fantastic B-Roll, great sound bytes, the best music. Fantastic script that goes beyond a simple teleological layout; instead the story becomes personal and emotional with each of the fantastic interviews, and especially with the Fame Records founder, Rick Hall's, life story.

    This has a lot of heart and soul. They could just read the Muscle Shoals' wiki and it make for a good flick. This is a REAL movie.

  5. swordofdoom's rating of the film Muscle Shoals

    Great history and nicely put together. Alicia Keys sucks a lot of the life out at the end. Skip that part, it's depressing.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Muscle Shoals

    Wonderful music documentary examining the 'Muscle Shoals' sound created by Rich Hall and an incredible group of musicians throughout the sixties and seventies. The discography created in a small studio in Alabama is staggering. The only drawback to this fine document is one wants to see more of the interviews captured. A must see for any funk/rock/soul fan. "...Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers..."
