more from rick hall’s fame studios


After yesterday’s post on Kent’s F.A.M.E. Studios 3cd, you might think it’s a groovy v/a comp. Well no, it has its moments, but it’s mostly deep soul ballads you’ll find onThe Fame Studio Story 1961-1973 Home Of The Muscle Shoals Sound… Sometimes in less obvious versions, but always high quality performances … even if they were sung by some unknown singer. But I wanted to show the funky side too, yesterday, because that often gets overlooked by a certain ‘beer, blues ‘n’ soul’ audience, no? As if northern soul = uptempo vs. southern soul = downtempo. And as if there isn’t enough confusion re: Muscle Shoals already! Anyhoo, enjoy the ups ànd the downs ;-)
