Muscle Shoals Sound Studio at 3614 Jackson Highway in Sheffield, Alabama was formed in 1969 by four session musicians called The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (and affectionately called The Swampers as popularized by Lynyrd Skynyrd). The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section was the first group of musicians to own a studio and to eventually run their own publishing and production companies - after leaving Rick Hall and FAME Studios.
Although we visited Muscle Shoals back in November, we never got around to creating a post. With the news of Rick Hall’s passing, today seemed like the right time.
So, with no further ado, here are photos of FAME Studios and the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio - where the Rolling Stones, Traffic, Bob Seger, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Dr. Hook, Elkie Brooks, Millie Jackson, Julian Lennon, Cher, and many, many others recorded.
