Win Muscle Shoals on DVD
Preview by Jack Foley
SOME of the greatest records of all time such as I’ll Take You There, Brown Sugar, When a Man Loves a Woman, I Never Loved A Man the Way That I Loved You and Mustang Sally all have one in thing in common, they are just a few of the tens of thousands of pieces of music created at Muscle Shoals, a place alongside the Tennessee River, Alabama.
In the critically acclaimed new feature documentary Muscle Shoals, directed by Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier, we are taken to a place filled with magic and music, legend and folklore where the river is inhabited by a Native American spirit, who has lured some of the greatest Rock and Roll and Soul legends of all time and drawn from them some of the most uplifting, defiant and important music ever created.
In Muscle Shoals, music runs through the hills, the river, and the spirit of the people. It is a place where, even before the civil rights movement really took shape, the colour of your skin didn’t matter inside the studio.
Jimmy Cliff, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Wilson Pickett, The Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Paul Simon, The Staple Singers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Percy Sledge and countless other stars have all been lured to this remote and mystical place in the backwoods of Alabama to work with the musicians and producers there.
Muscle Shoals comes to DVD on February 10, 2014 from Dogwoof with some fantastic special features.
