Hall was the guy responsible for many, many of the greatest hits ever recorded:
He was a good guy. If you have not yet seen his movie, go see it.
RIP. They don't make 'em like they used to.
Celebrate the music that came out of Hall's studio . . .
I can't recommend the documentary 'Muscle Shoals' enough. If you're not familiar with Rick Hall you will be afterwards. Should be on Netflix.
Wow I just finished watching that 10 minutes ago
A true legend of the industry. R.I.P.
+1 on the documentary, it's fantastic.
That Aretha tune may be the sexiest song ever recorded. In the documentary it's cool how they talk about working it up. I really believe music doesn't have color or sex exactly but the combo of white players and black players and their backgrounds--both dif and similar--is what put MS and Stax ahead of even Motown. Way greasier. Motown was great, no doubt, but more pop market oriented. All great stuff, of course.
I've always thought "When A Man Loves A Woman" was one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
Watch the thing on Netflix, it is great.
The sound lives on! R.I.P. Rick
