Le Blues de Memphis
Thanks to VeryShortList.com for turning me onto this gem…
“Le Blues de Memphis” is a VERY cool 11-minute video tour of two iconic music studios. Made for French television about forty years ago, it starts off at a Brook Benton session in Muscle Shoals, Alabama (hmmmmm, I’m thinking Skynard), and then (after a stop at Elvis Presley’s Graceland) takes us behind the scenes at Stax Records where Booker T. and the MGs are recording “Time Is Tight” with saxophone-playing Isaac Hayes directing the studio’s horn section. Awesome stuff for all music lovers.
