Muscle Shoals Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Thirteen tracks could never do justice to Muscle Shoals, the Alabama town whose studios and session musicians revolutionized R&B in the Sixties. But as a souvenir of the current documentary, in which Bono, Keith Richards and Alicia Keys pay tribute, this will do just fine. Soul treasures like Arthur Alexander's "You Better Move On" will be revelations to the uninitiated. And the torrid solo by then-unknown Duane Allman on Wilson Pickett's cover of "Hey Jude" captures the Deep South musical miscegenation that helped make Muscle Shoals so boundary-breaking – and still so thrilling to encounter.
