Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I looked at him and said, ‘So this is Rick Hall, this is FAME recording studios, and I’m in Alabama and I’m gonna get some of this Alabama mud.’ Rick Hall was the 1st white man I had seen that had that kind of soul; he was an engineer that was soulful. I would be so hard headed and say, don’t tell me nothing, but I finally realized that everything he used to badger me about, he was always right.” Etta James
The Man from Muscle Shoals is a great read! The epitome of hard work, raw drive, and belief in one’s self, Rick shows how he overcame personal tragedy, disappointment, and powerful industry opposition to establish and transform the small country town of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, into a world-renowned recording mecca.” Larry King
“I doubt I would have had the career I enjoy today without the genius of Rick Hall.” Donny Osmond
