The Muscle Shoals area of Alabama is a legendary place when it comes to the history of music. An incredible amount of great sounds were produced there in the ’60s and ’70s, buoyed by the talents of world-renowned session musicians like The Swampers, the Muscle Shoals Horns, Duane Allman and more.

When Amy Black recorded her new project, The Muscle Shoals Sessions , she headed to northern Alabama to cut some sides at Fame Studios, where legends such as Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Joe Tex and Aretha Franklin all threw down classic tracks.
A Muscle Shoals Music Revue perform Thursday at Southgate House Revival. More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com .
