LP (Item 17414) Stax, 1973 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

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 and a light stain.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cadet, 1966. Very Good-
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ...
