A different sort of sound for Booker T – working here not with the MGs, but with backing from the Drive By Truckers, and a fair bit of guitar from Neil Young! The album's still heavy on the sorts of organ lines we love in Booker's work stretching back to the early 60s years at Stax Records – but the guitars are pretty heavy too, and fuzz things up strongly on most numbers – moving the music from Memphis soul territory towards more of a southern rock sound of the spectrum – yet one that's still got a pretty solid, classic feel overall! The set's almost as if Booker recorded some lost tracks in the early 70s for Capricorn Records – letting some Allmans sit in and riff heavily alongside his keys – not that that's a bad thing for us at all, but it's a definite change from what you might expect. Titles include "Space City", "Potato Hole", "Pound It Out", "She Breaks", "Hey Ya", "Native New Yorker", "Nan", and "Warped Sister". © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
