Muscle Shoals Soundtrack

We saw the documentary Muscle Shoals yesterday afternoon. All I can say is if you love music and want to know why it sounds so good, go see this movie. The film captures the beauty of Alabama along the Tennessee River and the engineered audio excellence of so many time proven recorded classics.

The Muscle Shoals Soundtrack captures the film’s music essence. I would have loved to have seen “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones and “Main Street” by Bob Seger on the soundtrack but oh well that’s show business 😉

It’s a mind blower to know that “Sitting in Limbo” was NOT recorded in Jamaica! How I love that song. The versatility of The Swampers is amazing.
