"Muscle Shoals"

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Greg “Freddy” Camalier, director of “Muscle Shoals," and Rick Hall, founder of FAME Studios, at the center of the film, talk about  Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where, even before the Civil Rights Movement took shape, the color of your skin didn't matter inside the studio. Some of the greatest Rock and Roll and Soul legends of all time recorded some of the most uplifting, defiant, and important music there. “Muscle Shoals" opens September 27 at the IFC Center in NY and nationwide on VOD.
