  1. Great one, Jim! Iggy one shuffle!
    Carl Perkins is of the #1 Cool-Type Guys!! Us guys we’re working in Memphis last weekend at the new Sun Studios where they have a lot of Carl Perkins memorabilia all over the joint. We also saw our best friend Tom Waits while we were there.πŸ™ˆ

      • We have a studio here in Sweet Home and one of the walls is covered in autographs. At one time or another every major recording celebrity has been here. Muscle Shoals has an outstanding music legacy. Even today, Jason Isbell & the 400 unit are from here. (The 400 Unit it’s where they keep the crazy people at one of our local hospitals) Soul music icon, Percy Sledge was born here and recorded his hits right here at Quinn Ivy’s Studio. Aretha Franklin began her Atlantic Records career right here at Rick Hall’s Fame Studio’s in 1967. Recently Alicia Keys recorded an album at Fame. Otis Redding produced all of Arthur Conley’s it’s right here. The Staple Singers recorded their signature hits here along with Mel and Tim, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones, Paul Simon and Julian Lennon at Muscle Shoals sound Studios. I think it’s impossible to name any major artist that has not come here for the “Muscle Shoals treatment.” Etta James recorded here in the 1960s – 1990’s with Jerry Wexler at Fame and Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. Even jazz legend Randy Crawford recorded an album here. If you ever visit here be sure to check out the Alabama Music Hall of Fame located on Highway 72 as you approach Tuscumbia, Alabama! πŸ‘πŸŽΆπŸ‘
