For those who were won over by 20 Feet From Stardom, here's another documentary that'll take you back to the good ol' days of pop and rock, shining a light on one of its funky foundations. For the uninitiated, Muscle Shoals is the small town in northwestern Alabama that became a pop music temple. It drew hordes of recording artists, from Aretha Franklin to the Rolling Stones, all out to get a piece of that soulful "Muscle Shoals sound."An occasionally doleful but otherwise lively trip, this movie is yet another cinematic shout-out to those unsung heroes who came out of nowhere and made music that mattered.
