This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

MUSCLE SHOALS The documentary takes its name from the small northern Alabama town with not one but two legendary recording studios. The focus is on music producer Rick Hall and the celebrated crew of backup musicians known as the Swampers. The film can be annoyingly slick and overproduced. Oh well. The music and the musicians are what matter, and they’re often magnificent. Extras: additional scenes and interviews, commentary with Hall and director Greg Camalier. (Magnolia, $26.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)
