This chapter describes the work of Wallace Daniel Pennington, a sound engineer/aspiring singer/recently successful songwriter who was on the staff at Fame Studios at Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Directly and indirectly, Wallace would introduce Chips Moman, a fledgling studio, and some incipient ideas to the attention of the entire South and then to the larger world.
