The "Muscle Shoals Sound" - Part One

01/07/12 8:00PM By Joel Najman

The southern community of Muscle Shoals, Alabama for now over fifty years has been a wellspring of hit popular music far out of proportion to its tiny size. This week Joel Najman's My Place program presents the first in a several part series on what has come to be known as "The Muscle Shoals Sound" with a collection of landmark "soul" style recordings made at Rick Hall's legendary Fame studios in Muscle Shoals during the 1960's. Memorable hits by James & Bobby Purify, Joe Tex, Aretha Franklin are among the many selections presented.
