SLCene Suggests: Darlene Love with Muscle Shoals Live at Deer Valley

by on August 1, 2013

DARLENE LOVE AND MUSCLE SHOALS LIVE, DEER VALLEY, Sunday, Aug. 4, 7 p.m., $35 lawn/$45-$55-$65 reserved

This show is a brilliant bit of booking by the good people of the Park City Performing Arts Foundation, pairing artists from two of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival’s best music documentaries for what is sure to be one smoking night of soul, R&B and rock and roll at Deer Valley. Darlene Love was one of the featured women in Twenty Feet from Stardom, the excellent doc on backup singers, and her role as a pioneering force in American pop music landed her in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. She was the voice behind myriad Phil Spector-produced hits in the ’60s, many without getting any credit for it. Her reemergence to the public eye after getting out from under the thumb of Spector is a great redemption story and is the backbone of the film. Joining her at Deer Valley is a batch of musicians from the Muscle Shoals documentary about the Alabama recording studio that became a legendary stop for musicians of all stripes looking for a classic American soul and blues sound.
