Best Of: Booker T and the MG's -Groovin'!,
This review is from: The Best Of Booker T. & The MG's (Audio CD)
As anyone looking here probably knows, Booker T and the MG's were the house band for Stax studios, and where an integral part of the sound of many of their hit records, especially those of Otis Redding.
So what did the guys do when not backing classic records? They recorded some of their own. The big smash hit that everyone knows is Green Onions, and wisely not tampering with a winning formula the group recorded a few more in the same vein, with driving organ, and funky rhythms. This set collects a few of these together for those who want a bit more than just Green Onions.
A set of some excellent tunes, essential for anyone with an interest in the classic Stax sound.
