    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.

    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.

    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.
