Muscle Shoals production legend Rick Hall has died at age 85. His staggering legacy, however, will live forever.

That's unfortunate.
It's worth giving him his due.
Among many other things he gave Duane Allman a place to live & DA's 1st real chance to develop his music outside the pressures of the rock world.

It's also worth remembering that the house band at Fame left abt 1969 for reasons seldom discussed but must've involved lacking recompense &
idk or contretemps w/ Atlantic producer Jerry Wexler.

There's this book

There's this 1970 documentary which covers the 19602 soul music period
While the narration's in Swedish, it features some terrific & representative performance clips

There's this later documentary which also covers that period
but extends the story over the later, mostly rock-oriented period
[unfortunately only partially available at segments of this promo discussion due to (C) restrictions]
Both the promo interview segments & the documentary clips are worth viewing

& then there's this
