Page House Bed & Breakfast A Monument to Anyones Great Lodging Experiences

img_6201AmericanPressTravelNews.com Nov. 7th,Dublin, GA.–“Bob and Barb on the Road Again” and “Stopping to Smell the Roses”, and visit for awhile!–We stopped for a couple of nights to enjoy a real quality B&B and we were not even slightly disappointed staying at the really magnificent Page House. We first met Mono working the leaves off the driveway, just after pulling into a true early American Estate sized home from a different era and century with giant pillars and the look of what the real White House in D.C. must have looked like before the many gates and fences, additions and subtractions. This was a true Antebellum Southern home only remodeled to modernize the needs of casual tourists in all modern ways possible, but yet totally in keeping with the themes and decor of a quieter, more pastel time in American History. WE LOVED IT! We have learned that the owners make or break a B & B. Mono and JoAnn were fabulous, caring hosts and mighty fine chefs as well. This place as they say in GA. is   “The Gem of the Emerald City.” www.pagehousebb.com  ph and fax: (478) 275-4551

APtravelnews-December 1st,-Bob and Barb “On the Road Again” this time in Muscle Shoals, AL.-Music is like mans heart beat. So when FAME was established with entities such as FAME Publishing, FAME Recording Studios, FAME Records, and Muscle Shoals Record, word got out that “great” sounds were coming from Muscle Shoals and so in 1961 FAME moved over from Florence to the Shoals. FAME has had some of the greatest artists in Rock Music history. Artists such as Aretha Franklin, Little Richard, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Otis Redding, the Osmonds, Jerry Reed, Alabama, Mac Davis, the Gatlin Borthers, Bobbie Gentry, and many others. More recently FAME has recorded projects for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Matisyahu, Band of Horses, Drive by Truckers, the Civil Wars and Jamie Johnson to name just a few. Tours are available with very knowledgeable guides by calling 256-381-0801.

In 1969 Rick Hall’s House band, the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section left FAME and partnered with Jerry Wexler to found the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio at 3614 Jackson Highway in Sheffield, , AL. The studio owned by Jimmy Johnson, David Hood, Roger Hawkins, and Barry Beckett cranked out hits on the Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Bob Seger, Traffic, Rod Stewart, Cat Stevens, the Staple Singers, Levon Helm, Joe Cocker and a whole bunch more. The Rhythm section was eventually immortalized as “the Swampers” by Lynyrd  Skynyrd in the lyrics to “Sweet Home Alabama.” Call Bonnie for tour information at 256-394-3562
