These legendary musicians have been in our studio this week cutting tracks. The “Muscle Shoals ‘A’ Team” are some of the most prolific studio musicians working in the industry today and have contributed to countless hit albums and songs for literally hundreds of artists over the last 30 to 40 years. Collectively, they have played on records that have sold well over 500 million copies worldwide.
We were honored to host Milton Sledge on drums, Clayton Ivy on piano, Randy McCormick on keyboards and Hammond organ, David Hood on bass, Kelvin Holly and Will McFarlane on guitars. Legendary soul singer Willie Clayton’s vocals in the booth complemented the Shoals guys’ superb rhythm tracks.
Jimmy Johnson was scheduled to be in the session but sadly was not able to attend. Jimmy was a member of the original Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in-house band along with David Hood.
Enjoy this gallery of the guys hard at work at Malaco Studios, giving us that unmatched Muscle Shoals sound!
