THE STAX HOUSE BAND

As the house band for the Stax/Volt labels, Booker T. and The M.G.s helped define the spare, punchy sound of Memphis soul music. In contrast to Motown’s orchestrated, pop-soul records, the Stax approach was lean, economical and deeply grooveoriented. The group appeared on more than 600 recordings, including classics by such giants as Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Eddie Floyd, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, and William Bell, among many others. This quintessential collector’s editioncontains Booker T. and The M.G.s’ outstanding debut LP, Green Onions (1962) – one of the all-time cornerstones of soul and R&B. The album includes the legendary title track that became a major hit, its original B-side (“Behave Yourself”), a new composition dubbed “Mo’ Onions”, and nine assorted covers of popular R&B hits of the period. In addition, this remastered CD features 8 bonus tracks, presenting some of the same songs from the album recorded by other seminal artists. This is the material upon which the Memphis soul legacy was built.
