A small town in Alabama where the Fame recording studio, and later, Muscle Shoals Sound recording studio were established ... Great black artists like Arthur Alexander, Percy Sledge, etc. record music backed by an all-white band comprised of talented local teenagers (pictured below) ... later Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, so many greats featured ... Lynyrd Skynyrd, Duane Allman, The Rolling Stones, and countless others make their appearance. Interesting, esp. in the context of the civil rights movement. Heard a new expression from Rick Harris, maybe it's well known in the South, but not to me: "shitting in high cotton" ... means riding high, good days, I guess.
