Muscle Shoals

Friday, September 27 - Thursday, October 24, 2013

In a tiny, unassuming Alabama town, some of the greatest music of all time was spawned: “Mustang Sally,” “I Never Loved a Man,” “Wild Horses” and countless others. With unseen vintage footage of icons like Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Staples Singers, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more, plus contemporary interviews with the talented visionaries behind the legendary “Muscle Shoals sound,” this invaluable documentary unearths the rich history of American music’s most fertile ground.
