These "homecoming sessions" were hardly overprepared. Songs were often picked and arrangements were fashioned in the studio. Producer Moman led with the simple faith that given respect and freedom, the best music in these men's hearts would flow as surely as the Mississippi heads for the Delta. The blend of styles and music brought together beautifully under the sound best called "American Music".
