Respect Yourself Robert Gordon,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion (Kindle Edition)
Ace book in the Stax story! Covers well The music and the racially divided social context from which it emerged, and shows how a love of music making created an integrated haven from which emerged the great music to which we are still listening. Full of insights into the music, the people who made it, the MGs, Isaac Hayes, Al Bell, and the Memphis from which it emerged. Gordon not only is a good writer but he loves the music and the people who made it. He is a sweet soul writer and he will "take you there"
