A near-lost chapter in the Stax Records catalog – and an album recorded by The MGs in the years after Booker left Memphis and the group for the California scene! The album features organist Carson Whitsett at the keys – doing a pretty good job of filling Booker's place – but the real strength of the set comes from drummer Al Jackson – who plays the kit with some nice crackling moments, mixing up soul and funk with the unusual sensitivity that made him so great! The best cuts have kind of a "bubbling under" organ sound – in kind of a post-Melting Pot mode that's really nice and mellow – and titles include "Black Side", "Left Overs", "Sugar Cane", "Neck Bone", and "Spare Change". (Cover has a cutout hole with some light stains near the spine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Joy & Pain
Capitol, 1980. Very Good
Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly! The record's perhaps one of their best remembered – most likely for the killer cut "Joy & Pain", which has a great hook that's been sampled many times over the years. The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album
