    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 learn about the pioneers who took a real risk in trying to build the music recording industry, and we learn about the incredibly hard working musicians who made it all possible.The clear love Fuqua has for his subject matter flows like a great, entertaining river as we read page after page of really interesting stuff I especially enjoyed the many old photos sprinkled throughout the book I m visual by nature, and so, just like I love the photos in all those old National Geographic magazines, don t we all , I find this same enjoyment with the old historical photos displayed in the Muscle Shoals book Fuqua s book is a first class compendium of influential music making in the 20th Century His writing has true gravitas I give this book 5 STARS.
