"Muscle Shoals"

A special film presentation



Host:  Ken Hunold, Dolby
Presenter: Jonathan Abrams, Nutmeg Post

Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama has helped create some of the most 
important and resonant songs of all time. Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, Rick 
Hall brought black and white together to create music for the generations. He is responsible for 
creating the "Muscle Shoals sound" and The Swampers, the house band at FAME Studios that eventually 
left to start its own successful studio known as Muscle Shoals Sound. Gregg Allman and others bear 
witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism, mystery, and why it remains influential today.

This beautifully made documentary tells the story entirely with first-person accounts and 
contemporaneous
session footage.

Director:  Greg 'Freddy' Camalier.

Producers: Stephen Badger, Greg 'Freddy' Camalier.

Contributors include Gregg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Jimmy Cliff, Aretha Franklin, Rick Hall,
Mick Jagger, Alicia Keys, Spooner Oldham, John Paul White, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Candi 
Staton and Steve Winwood.

The film is provided by Swank Motion Pictures.
