Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of the greatest rock & roll and soul music of all time. Here, a couple of unremarkable-looking recording studios gave birth to such iconic songs as "Brown Sugar," "When a Man Loves a Woman," "Mustang Sally" and "Kodachrome." Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism, mystery and why it remains influential today.
