Muscle Shoals Sound Studio

After playing on hits for the likes of Wilson Pickett and Aretha Franklin at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, four session musicians start Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, where they record The Staple Singers, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones.

The original building at 3614 Jackson Highway is bought by Noel Webster in 1999, who along with the purchase gets the name “Muscle Shoals Sound Studios.” The place is abandoned when he buys it, but he eventually restores some functionality – enough for The Black Keys to record their Brothers album there in 2009.

T.S. Eliot wants you to know that he never had sex with Emily Hale, who didn’t appreciate his poetry anyway.

This is perfect and brilliant …

Eliot was “disagreeably surprised” at Hale’s donation (of his letters to her) in 1956 and left behind a statement at Harvard University’s Houghton Library with instructions that it be made public at the same time as the letters.
