Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bono, and Steve Winwood, are among the many legendary artists appearing in the new documentary, Muscle Shoals, which will premiere this year at the Sundance Film Festival. Rolling Stone reported that the doc, directed by Greg “Freddy” Camalier, chronicles Rick Hall’s legendary FAME Studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, in Alabama, which featured arguably the hottest studio band of its time — the Swampers.

Just prior to their infamous Altamont concert in December 1969, the Rolling Stones recorded three tracks at Muscle Shoals — “Brown Sugar,” “You Gotta Move,” and “Wild Horses” — all of which appeared on the band’s 1971 set, Sticky Fingers. As Jagger says in the trailer “Being there does inspire you to do it slightly differently. It was really funky; y’know, that was the whole idea of it.”

Among the legendary acts that recorded at Muscle Shoals and FAME include, Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, Canned Heat, Boz Scaggs, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Otis Redding, Joe Tex, Duane Allman, Tom Jones, Etta James, the Osmonds, and countless others.
