Summary Jones chronicles the story of the rhythm section at Chips Moman's American Studios from 1964, when the group began working together, until 1972, when Moman shut down the studio and moved the entire operation to Atlanta. Utilising extensive interviews with Moman and the group, as well as additional comments from the songwriters, sound engineers, and office staff, the author creates a collective biography combined with a business history and a critical analysis of important recordings.
