Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, Rick Hall and FAME studios brought black and white together in Alabama's cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations, while giving birth to the "Muscle Shoals Sound" and "The Swampers." Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Gregg Allman, Clarence Carter, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Bono, and others bear witness to Muscle Shoal's magnetism, mystery, and why it remains influential today.
