Fascinating doco of a studio responsible for some of the greatest music ever
July 28, 2017
Interesting look at one specific studio and how much great music came out of it. A little repetitive but at least the soundtrack is awesome.

If you've heard Lynyrd Skynyrd's signature song "Sweet Home Alabama" (and there's no way you haven't), you've probably heard the lines, "Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers / And they've been known to pick a song or two." In "Muscle Shoals," Greg Camalier explores the lives of a few studio musicians from Alabama's small, titular town and how they forever changed the course of music.

I could say so many positive things about this work I'd use all of RT's bandwidth. If you are at all into music, music history, music theory, anything. Or if you like true stories about people experiencing ultimate highs and lows, but keep coming back, this is a must see. You'll exerience the full range of emotions.

See this documentary now , and if you've never been to Muscle Shoals or the Florence Area, then plan a weekend getaway to enjoy the areas Cultural and Musical History. It's a very odd place with an essence you can't quite put your finger on...not quite charming but there is an enchanting quality about the river and the trees and the earth.....Oh my bad , this is a Movie review not a travel Muscle Shoals is a must watch documentary for anyone who considers themselves a lover of Music. The interviews and stories from some of the worlds greatest musicians will send chills down your arms and awaken your musical's really this good ! 4 stars

Very good movie, very interesting story about a little town that was the center for so much great music. I'm not a big fan of music documentaries, but this movie was very good.

A superb music documentary about the brilliant Rick Hall and four of the greatest musicians you've never heard off. This is a must see film.

The Stones get too much play, but I suppose that helps them sell the movie. The rest is pretty great. Rick Hall is a fascinating character, and I loved listening to The Swampers talk about the split. They still seem nervous about it!

Best music doc i've ever seen
January 27, 2016
Stumbled upon this doc by complete accident and was blown away. If you're a fan of music (especially from the 70s) and appreciate the notion that places and spaces can spark creativity, you'll love it.

I have never watched a movie more than three times voluntarily. I would watch Muscle Shoals again, tonight. For the tenth time. And tomorrow.

a really amazing documentary. it's amazing that such a small town could produce so much great music
October 24, 2015
Best scene is when Aretha becomes the Alpha Diva in a room full of white musicians. Bono has some spot on funny quotes. Must see for the music buff.

For anyone that grew up listening to soul, R&B and rock and roll in the 60's and 70's and still gets moved by music, this is a fascinating story

Historia apasionante y muy, muy bien montado a nivel documental.

If you're into music, this is very deep look into how most of the music that we all listen to today was created and you feel it.
