If you missed Muscle Shoals in Winston-Salem, catch it in Greensboro this week.

First time filmmaker Greg “Freddy” Camalier weaves together great music, captivating archival material, and contemporary interviews to tell the story of one town (Muscle Shoals, Alabama), two recording studios (FAME Studios and The Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section), a feud (whew!), some classic music (wow!), and very interesting commentary on race.

With a stronger narrative arc than 20 Feet From Stardom (which I liked very much) and an appeal all its own, this film should qualify as a crowd-pleaser.
