    The experimental work with Yurts was impressive, albeit lengthy.

    Richard Wilson (Guardian) used to write extensively about this era of music generally, before he got into sport journalism.

    So I was expecting his obituary of Rick Hall to be an interesting read, which it is, IMO.

    I also liked the article that blossie33 posted, link above.

    ETA : I'd love to see that 'Muscle Shoals' documentary from 2013 at some point -- it got a 4 star review -- deservedly?

    Yes, I think so - I saw the film at the cinema originally and then bought the DVD which I've watched quite a few times since - always enjoy it - can recommend.
    The only flaw with it is the opening comments are made by Bono :facepalm: ;) :D

    Great bloke R.I.P.
    Candi Staton's early stuff with FAME are as near to Aretha as you can get. The Country music crossover with Soul R&B is always a great listen when its done properly as Rick and his associates did.
