usually when you go to see a movie, you have some idea about what you are getting ready to watch. however a few weeks ago at billy reid’s shindig, i knew i was getting ready to watch a documentary on muscle shoals, but i had no idea what i was about to witness and learn.
it is hands down, one of the best documentaries about southern culture. i was shocked to learn so much about one of our neighboring towns that legends from the rolling stones and lynyrd skynyrd, to aretha franklin and wilson pickett came together with local muscians to produce some of the most memorable sounds of the south. do yourself a huge favor and go see this movie at the belcourt this weekend.
