5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Introduction to Stax... 18 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is vol.2 of a 9 CD series that you can buy as a complete box set from Amazon, but it might make sense financially to buy them individually as I did. The series aims to provide exactly what it says on the tin, that is every single (excluding B-sides) released on the Stax/ Volt label, between 1958-1968.

This CD includes all the singles released between 1962-63 and starts off with the evergreen (no pun intended) `Green Onions' by Booker T & the MG's. This raucous dance groove was Stax's first big cross-over hit reaching no.3 on the Pop chart and no.1 on the R&B chart. Recorded by Steve Cropper, Al Jackson jr, Booker T and Lewis Steinberg, who were effectively the Stax house band, this was destined to be the flip to `Behave Yourself' (also included here). This was the first of what was to be a decade of great instrumentals and 14 chart hits (another three of which appear on this volume, including `Chinese Checkers').

The criminally underrated William Bell also has a number of tracks here, including `Any Other Way', `I Told You So', `Somebody Mentioned Your Name' & `I'll Show You'. A great singer who struggled at Stax at first (none of these tracks was a hit), these tracks give you a good idea of the range of talent that the label had early on. The Tonettes , Deanie Parker & The Valadors (who would go on to become one of Stax's great songwriters), and `The Astors' (originally `The Chips' [see Stax/Volt: The Complete Singles Vol. 1: 1959-1961]) all making an appearance.

Also included here is Otis Redding's first single `These Arms of Mine' as well as singles by members of his band.
