    1. If you've never read the books of C.S. Fuqua, you're in for a real treat. "Muscle Shoals: The Hit Capital's Heyday and Beyond", is one of those treats. The only thing I really knew about Muscle Shoals before reading this book was that my hero Bob Dylan recorded several albums there. Other than that I'd only picked up a tale or two from nosing around online. Fuqua clearly loves Muscle Shoals and the great music it spawned. He has covered its rise to awesome musical power from beginning to end. We [...]


    2. Wonderful book, excellent resource. Well written and illuminating. Mr. Fuqua thoroughly researched his subject. The interwoven narrative and stories, many of which can only be found in Alabama Musicians, provide a background for Alabama’s musical history, giving context and humanity to the musical events. I loved the short bios. They provide a quick yet informative overview of the musicians who recorded in the Shoals and those who were from the state, many of which were a delightful surprise.


    3. This book is really irritating. Too many paragraphs listing names and histories of many individuals -- break up the narrative. I am not going to finish it. Irritating. Needed an editor!
