The house band at Stax, Booker T. & The MG’s were so good, so tight, that each member—guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn, drummer Al Jackson, Jr., and keyboardist/bandleader Booker T. Jones—is a legend in his own right. Playing behind such superstars as Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, and Wilson Pickett, the group forever defined the sound of Southern soul. And on their own—man, they just couldn’t be topped, with a total of 12 Pop and 15 R&B hits during their unparalleled tenure at Stax. That’s why they are the greatest instrumental R&B band of all time…and, not incidentally, a potent symbol of racial integration and harmony from a time when such diverse outfits were rare. We at Real Gone Music are very proud to bring you every single side Booker T. & The MG’s recorded for Stax on two volumes.

The first 29 single sides Booker T. & The MG’s recorded for Stax, featuring “Green Onions,” “Boot-Leg,” “Hip Hug-Her,” and “My Sweet Potato” among the 15 chart hits featured on this collection! Mastered by Dan Hersch at d2 Mastering, with tape research and sourcing by Mike Johnson and Aaron Kannowski with help from Bill Inglot to ensure these are the original mono single versions.
