Product description

Product Description

Stax - four letters that came to symbolize southern soul in the Sixties. The name came from the combination of names of founder Jim Stewart and his sister Estelle Axton. She put in a financial investment in 1959 while Stewart, a white former country fiddle-player, spotted the opportunity. The label they founded briefly challenged Motown as the leading black-music source of the era. Stax closed its doors in late 1975, but its back catalogue remains untouchable. This collection of the label's early tracks is the bedrock on which its legend was founded.

I'm so impressed with One Day's output. Just when I thought they couldn't better their Chess Compilation Hoochie Coochie Man- The Chess Story, through the letterbox drops this DIAMOND! Any collection with Green Onions is always going to be worth 5 stars before it starts, that's a given, but this is a TEN star collection. I thought I'd heard most of Stax's output but on listening to this it's soon become apparent that I really had only scratched the surface. Part of this is my lack of investigation, but part of the blame I lay at the seemingless endless number of Stax compilations that have been available over the years, all churning out the usual suspects for a premium price. At last I have had the scales lifted and see (well hear) that there was so much more. AND I ONLY PAID £4.00!
If I hadn't bought this I would have missed so much and my musical life would have been the poorer.
Don't make that mistake. Buy, buy, buy!

By Dangerous Dave TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 Mar. 2015
Format: Audio CD
Memphis, Tennessee, the city to which Chuck Berry was so desperate to get connected in order to speak to his six year old daughter. And the place that was Music City to millions in the fifties and sixties - forget the competing demands of Nashville, LA and New York. Firstly it was via Sun with blues (Howlin' Wolf started off there) and then quite magnificent rockabilly, and then to Stax (and later Hi) who simply defined sixties sweet soul music for so many of us.

This collection aims to takes us from the origins of Stax, which was founded as Satellite Records in 1957, up to 1962 by which time the name change had occurred, a sister label Volt had been formed and a whole lot of good music had already been produced. I say already since Stax / Volt was to continue at the forefront of soul music right through the sixties. One minor historical beef: the first Volt Otis Redding single "These arms of mine" which was released in November 1962, isn't present. I don't know if that is for PD reasons or some other, but it would have been nice if it was there, taking us up to near the end of '62 and revealing the early delights of Stax's only true megastar.

But don't fret about the absence of Otis. There's plenty here to keep the ears and brain occupied and feet tapping of course. Within the first five tracks we get the two most famous instrumentals ever released on Stax, with one of that pair, arguably, the most famous R&B cum soul instrumental ever. Yes, I'm talking about Booker T and the MG's "Green Onions" and the Markeys "Last Night". The latter came first in order of release and some of the Markeys morphed into MG's.

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Mar. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This two Cd `Wait A Minute' 'The Stax and Satellite story 1959 to 1962' set consists of
ORIGINAL RECORDINGS by the original artists.
At this low low price at under a fiver means the cost is less than a modern day single CD.
This is an absolute steal of a price.

The simple reason for the low price?
The recordings are over 50 years old and may be `Public Domain' in the USA.

But it's hard to work out which tracks are on the CD Amazon seemed to have jumbled all the tracks in one long set of lines.

If you are like me and find it hard to see exactly which tracks are on the two CDs then this easy to read list may help?

By the way the title of the CD set 'Wait a Minute' is from the great single by Barbara Stephens which is featured as track six on CD one.
My title is a tribute to the artists and is from 2 singles on the CD 'Morning After' by The Mar-Keys and 'Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes' by Carla Thomas .
