    Hello! Yes you are so correct. I tried to start learning about dirt and am sort of up to roots! It amazes me how much more there must be to learn!

    @Dirtmechanic, My maternal grandparents have clay soil. I learned a lot from their dirt.

    Glorious! You were close!

    In Birmingham they love the Gov'nor, boo-hoo-hoo,

    Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers,

    They've been known to pick a song or two.


    "Swampers" was the nickname given to the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, a group of studio musicians who initially played at FAME Studios before leaving in 1969 to form Muscle Shoals Sound Studio. They were the first rhythm section to own a studio and operate publishing and production companies. The musicians and their story are the subject of the documentary "Muscle Shoals." The Sheffield studio is now a museum.
