Reissue Review: The Fame Studios Story: 1961-1973

Christmas is right around the corner and The 13th Floor can think of no better gift for the astute music appreciator than this 3-disc set just released locally by Ace UK/Border NZ. Fame Studios were responsible for some of the finest Southern Soul records to be recorded during the 1960s. The studio and subsequent label were run by Rick Hall who produced and engineered many of the 75 tracks included on this collection. Among the most prominent artist to record at Fame are Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Etta James and Clarence Carter. But as this release proves, there was a lot more to Fame than just this handful of hitmakers.
