Rick Hall, the father of the Muscle Shoals sound, dies at 85
Responsible for lots of good music.
Dang, losing a bunch of them right now. I remember a juke box in the pool hall of a very small town in Eastern North Carolina that used to blare all those old R&B songs late into the night. My mother hated it but that's a lasting impression on a young, budding musician back in the 60s. I ended up playing in show bands doing all the Motown and Stax hits all night to appreciative dancers.
May I ask which small town in Eastern NC? My family's from Franklin Co.
And yes, another great figure is lost. RIP Mr. Hall
Yes, a sad loss. Rick Hall recorded one heck of a lot of hits in various genres. and Fame Studios and Fame Records are a key architect in the Southern Soul genre and Muscle Shoals sound. R.I.P. Rick Hall, your legacy is wide, vast, and will live on for all with ears to hear, you made the world sound great.
Hey, if you have not seen the Muscle Shoals movie, I highly recommend it ...
Worth it all for the glimpses of the Stones, Duane Allman, etc!
God bless you for all that great music - and RIP, Rick Hall!
Sorry to hear this, RIP Rick.
Muscle Shoals has got the swampers, they've been known for a song or two (just a few)...
He definitely left his mark on the music industry. RIP
Understatement for sure! Thanks for the heads up Coyle.
Yes, sad to hear. I've watched the "Muscle Shoals" Documentary numerous times, he sure had a difficult past.
