Staple SingersCome Go With Me – The Stax Collection (Soul Folk In Action/We'll Get Over/Staple Swingers/Be Altitude/Be What You Are/City In The Sky/rarities) (7LP set) ... LP
Stax/Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7 LPs ... $130.99 149.99
Legendary sounds from the Staple Singers – a set of albums for Stax Records that really helped push the group from the gospel folk underground into the soul music mainstream – and which also helped transform the rest of the scene in the process! The Staple Singers had recorded previously for Vee Jay, Epic, and other labels – but when the group hit Stax, at a time when the label was newly set free in the late 60s, the mix of forces really turned out to create something special – message-oriented soul music that drew on the strength of the group's gospel experience, but delivered themes that were every bit as righteous from a secular perspective too – all set to music from the great studio forces who were making Stax so wonderful at the time! This set features six full albums, all from the original tapes – Soul Folk In Action, We'll Get Over, Staple Swingers, Be Altitude Respect Yourself, Be What You Are, and City In The Sky – plus a special Singles Live & More album of bonus tracks! Bonus tracks include "Stay With Us", "Brand New Day", "Walking In Water Over Your Head", "I Got To Be Myself", "Oh La De Da", and "Trippin On Your Love" – plus Live At Wattstax recordings of "I'll Take You There", "Respect Yourself", "Heavy Makes You Happy", "Are You Sure", and "I Like The Things About Me". Comes in a heavy box, with all original album sleeves, and 180 gram vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus ThomasFunkiest Man – The Stax Funk Sessions 1967 to 1975 ... LP
Stax/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $19.99 22.99
The funkiest man? Could well be – and this set will more than support that case! By the time of these recordings, Rufus Thomas was already a legendary figure in the Memphis scene – an aging R&B star that also worked on radio and did a fair bit of promotion for other artists, including daughter Carla. At the end of the 60s, Stax brought him into the studio with the idea of pumping up his sound a bit – adding in some of the newer funky styles, which proved to be a perfect fit for Rufus' rough-hewn style of vocals. Tracks on the set feature a number of classic singles from these years, plus a few unissued numbers – with an all funky track list that includes "Funkiest Man Alive", "Give Me The Green Light", "Itch & Scratch", "Turn Your Damper Down", "Funky Hot Grits", "I'm Getting Better", "Sophisticated Sissy", "Funky Mississippi", "Git On Up & Do It", "The Breakdown (part 1)", "Push & Pull (part 1)", "Do The Double Bump", "Funky Robot (part 1)", "Memphis Train 75", and "Funky Bird".

VariousComplete Stax/Volt Singles 1959 to 1968 (9CD box set) ... CD
Stax/Volt/Atlantic, 1950s. Used 9 CDs ... $49.99
This is it! A pretty darn complete document of one of the greatest soul labels of all time – put together in a wonderful box with a book on the label that's almost as great as the music on the 9CDs in the set! This one established a new standard for box sets when it was issued in 1991, and it was the first time you could really get a clear picture of the great work of Stax without spending a lifetime tracking down obscure singles. A portion of this work will be familiar to you – as it includes classic tunes by the likes of Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, The Bar-Kays, Booker T & The MGs, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, William Bell, and others – but there's also a wealth of amazing soul by artists who recorded for Stax and Volt, yet never made it big on the charts, and never cut full albums for the label. Just a small amount of these folks include The Memphis Nomads, Jeanne & The Darlings, Derek Martin, Barbara & The Browns, Eddie Jefferson, The Tonettes, Macy Skipper, The Premiers, Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, Ruby Johnson, Bobby Wilson, Eddie Purrell, Sir Mack Rice, and many others. A lifetime of listening in one box – and an essential set if you dig 60s soul! This is the nicely compact jewel case version – 9CDs in a box that's roughly 6" square. CD

VariousOther Side Of The Trax – Stax/Volt 45rpm Rarities 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Stax/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Stax Records turned out plenty of hits in the 60s – but the Memphis label was also a non-stop powerhouse of recording, and cut countless sides that were every bit as great as their hits, but never fully got their due! This collection brings together a huge amount of those gems – 24 rare Stax singles, none of which have ever been reissued – which makes this package a treasure trove of under-discovered Memphis soul, even if you've got some other Stax/Volt sets in your collection! A number of these tracks are early numbers by artists who'd break bigger on Stax later in the 60s – and others are by singers you might not know at all, but who were key to helping the label form its sound at the time – as their top-shelf team of writers and studio talents made these obscure singles every bit as great as their work for bigger artists. Titles include "I Need Somebody" by Johnny Daye, "Separation" by Carla Thomas, "Under My Nose" by Eddie Floyd, "Here I Am" by Lynda Lyndell, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "I Gotta Have My Baby's Love" by Sir Mack Rice, "Sweet Thing" by Gorgeous George, "The Big Dipper" by Sir Issac & The Do Dads, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "Beach Bash" by The Mar-Kays, "You Belong To Her" by Barbara & The Browns, "Strange Things" by Johnny Taylor, and "This Kind Of Woman" by Ivory Joe Hunter.

VariousStax 68 – A Memphis Story (5CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy 5CD ... Just Sold Out!
1968 was the world of revolution around the world – and to our music-trained ears, one of the greatest revolutions occurred at the legendary Stax Records! Before that year, the label had been working with Atlantic Records – who totally screwed them, and took away all their catalog – leaving Stax to start completely from scratch, and reinvent themselves as an even more righteous company in the process! Make no mistake, Stax was already a pretty great company before – the leading light of the Memphis soul scene – but in 1968, the company went back to basics, and also embraced new waves of funk and blues, freed up to go into some very groovy territory. This 5CD set documents that amazing time – by bringing together all the singles released in 1968, both a-sides and b-sides – along with a big booklet of notes and photos that not only talk about the changes at the label, but also the city of Memphis in the tragic year of 1968 – which also saw the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. The package is overflowing with as much history as it is soul music – and features over 120 songs by artists who include Booker T & The MGs, Linda Lynell, Judy Clay, Harvey Scales, Otis Redding, The Memphis Nomads, Shirley Walton, Bar-Kays, Ollie & The Nightingales, William Bell, The Goodees, Mable John, The Epsilons, The Soul Children, Mad Lads, Charmells, Lindell Hill, Jimmy Hughes, Delaney & Bonnie, Dino & Doc, Daaron Lee, Albert King, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Derek Martin, Johnnie Taylor, and many more!

Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... CD
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

Stax, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The Memphis sound, working hard overseas – in a smoking live set that has some Stax Records stars working in Paris! There's a tightness here that arguably goes past the studio work by the singers – possibly because everyone's working in the same space, with the same backing group – and together have this intimacy that really makes the music sparkle. And sure, it's a bit rough around the edges at points, but in a good way – one that helps get past too-familiar modes in the tunes. Titles include "You Don't Know Like I Know" and "You Got Me Hummin" by Sam & Dave, "Raise Your Hand" and "But It's Alright" by Eddie Floyd", "Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding, and "I Got My Mojo Working", "Let Me Be Good To You", and "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas.

Stax, 1972/1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoldering live set from Little Milton, recorded by Stax when they were staging the legendary Wattstax concerts in LA! Milton didn't make the stadium bill, but like a lot of other Stax artists, brought the funk to the West Coast at a smaller venue the same night, and that set is captured here, though not issued for over a decade! The group features Milton's horn-augmented urban blues setup, and pops in his trademark funky, soulful mode that really let him crossover to audiences more into the predominant R&B and soul sound not just in LA, but nationwide! He stretches out nicely on half a dozen cuts, including "Let Me Down Easy", "Grits Ain't Groceries (All Around The World)", "Blind Man", "I Can't Quit You Baby", "That's What Love Will Make You Do" and "Walking The Back Streets And Crying".

Despite the title, not all the work here is in the southern soul mode you might expect – and the collection features plenty of numbers that rival the greatness of east coast harmony soul of the time, plus some other rare bits that are beyond description! Many numbers here are relatively obscure – and the 13 track collection features singles that include "Since I've Been In Love" by The Dramatics, "The Echo" by The Epsilons , "All Because Of You" by The Limitations , "Since I Fell For You" by The Lords , "Mannish Boy" and "Too Much Going On To Say Goodbye" by The Newcomers, "Which Way" and "Anyone Can" by The Leaders, "I Love You, You Love Me" by The Temprees, "Let Me Repair Your Heart" by The Mad Lads, "Peaceful Journey" by Fat Larry's Band, and "I'll Be Your Anything" by Ollie & The Nightingales.

Stax/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of tight, organ-driven grooves from Booker T & The MGs – a quartet who really helped transform the sound of soul music in the 60s – even if they never sang on any of their records! The combo instrumental record had existed before Booker and the group, but working at Stax Records during the glory days of the Memphis soul scene, The MGs were able to come up with a whole new approach – tight, focused, and very sharp – not entirely funky, but not far off either – usually just with a scratchy guitar line to tighten up the rhythm, and Booker's fantastic lines on the organ to set up the tune! The group recorded a number of classic albums for Stax, but they maybe shone most on their singles – especially the b-sides, which were where they really had fun. (And trivia – "Green Onions", their biggest hit, was originally a b-side!) The set features the first run of their Stax singles – 29 tracks in all, with lots of unusual instrumentals next to the hits – titles that include "My Sweet Potato", "Booker Loo", "Aw Mercy", "Home Grown", "Big Train", "Chinese Checkers", "MG Party", "Soul Dressing", "Tic Tac Toe", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", "Slim Jenkins Place", "Winter Wonderland", "Hip Hug Her", "Red Beans & Rice", "Can't Be Still", "Terrible Thing", "Outrage", "Boot Leg", "Fannie Mae", "Summertime", "Winter Snow", and of course, "Green Onions".

Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible album from saxophonist Herb Geller – one that's quite different than his better-known sides for Mercury, and which features Geller blowing in an amazingly evocative tone! The first three tracks on the album are haunting originals by Herb – tunes that have a more open style than some of his more tightly arranged work, and which show the kind of fascination with sound structures that would show up much more heavily in later years. The group features Victor Feldman on vibes, Walter Norris on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Anthony Vazley on drums – and the mix of vibes with Geller's horn is an especially nice element, one that adds to the haunting feel of the whole set. Titles include "Nightmare Alley", "A Cool Day", "The Princess", "Change Partners", and "It Might As Well Be Spring". CD

The range of work is really great, and the 16 track set moves easily from hits to more obscure numbers – in a mode that really shows the growing sound of Stax as the 70s approached.

Now Again, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 4LP ... Out Of Stock
Vols 1 & 2 of Now Again's incredible compilation series for the True Soul label – assembled with the personal participation of the label's owner, Lee Anthony – in a 4LP box set! It's rare regional funk & soul made under the mightily imposing shadows of southern labels like Stax and Hi Records – but the tunes here are straight up incredible and as ripe for discovery as any music of the era. The label was called True Soul and they don't take that moniker lightly – but it's adventurously soulful, with strains of psychedelic soul and funk, with a bit of southern swagger. In the later years, there's some 70s boogie, spacey keys and other elements. The True Soul vinyl box set includes 32 tracks on 4LPs: "Slipping Around (45 Version)", "Funky Music", "Sister Funk (Original, Full Version)" and "Follow The Rainbow (Alternate Mix)" by Thomas East, a great instrumental cover of "Come Together" and "The Thrill Is Gone" by Albert Smith, "Doing My Own Thing" and "I Don't Want It" by John Craig, "Funky Football", "Psychedelic Hot Pants (Full Version)" and more by York Wilbern's Psychedelic Six, "Hard Times" and "The Funk's Gonna Fly" by Classic Funk, "I Gotta Move With The Groove" by The Right Track, "The Real Thing" by The Conspiracy, "(It's A) "Rat Race" by The Leaders, 'Down Home Funk (Full Version)" by Larry Davis, "Get Down" and "Gigolo" by Le'Chance, "I Took Your Love (To Be True)" by Soul Mind And Body and more.

Stax/Light In The Attic, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Massive soul from Wendy Rene – one of the lesser-known talents from the Stax Records scene of the 60s, and an artist who's finally getting her due! We're not sure why Wendy never hit bigger at the time – because her singles here are wonderful – excellent female soul that not only ranks with the best of the Stax sound of the time, but which also challenges the bite of some of the best Motown music too – thanks to a particularly northern groove on some of the best cuts here! In fact, it may well be this style – often closer to Detroit soul than the usual Memphis bag at Stax – that might have held Wendy back. But that's hardly an issue all these many years later – and our hat's off to the folks at Light In The Attic for not only bringing together her rare singles, but also collecting unreleased songs, other rarities, and even material performed with the group The Drapels – all recorded in the years 1964 and 1965, and supported by some great notes too. Titles include "Bar B Q", "I Wish I Were That Girl", "What Will Tomorrow Bring", "Last Love", "Crowded Park", "Give You What I Got", "Deep In My Heart", "Wondering", "First Kiss", "Reap What You Sow", "After Laughter Comes Tears", and "He Hasn't Failed Me Yet".

A full, rich set from William Bell – one that's got a headier 70s approach than some of his earlier work for Stax – with a set of themes that clearly pick up on the socially conscious vibe of the time, set to arrangements that include a bit more keyboards and funky guitar than usual! William's got the Muscle Shoals Rhythm team backing him up – and the album was recorded in both Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a hard-hitting righteous sound that's easily a summation of the best of both scenes at the time – with a slight nod towards the smoother southern grooves from deeper south. Titles include the funky title cut "Phases Of Reality", plus "50 Dollar Habit", "Save Us", "What I Don't Know Won't Hurt Me", "The Man In The Street", and "Lonely For Your Love".

The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd expect – that great Booker/Steve Cropper sound that can't be denied – and there's a rawness here that you don't get as much in later years – more of a funky 45 vibe that really keeps things fresh! Titles include a few nice originals – like "Soul Jam" and "My Sweet Potato" – but ever the covers sound pretty darn great, with a lot more imagination than the usual instrumental filler. As proof, there's a killer version of "Summertime", with a nice modal groove, plus nice takes on "Think" and "Working In A Coal Mine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono light blue label pressing with deep groove, in fantastic shape!)

Booker T's classic "Green Onions" – a tune that was actually composed by accident, but went onto become his trademark track! This might be the second single for the song – which was originally a b-side – and it's backed here with the mellow and introspective "Behave Yourself". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Obscure later work from Booker T! "Jamaica This Morning" has a slow grooving feel with plenty of "island" in the mix – guitar getting a bit rough in the middle, but mostly sweet organ bubbling along. "Fuquawi" is rougher and harder – kind of chugging and driving, although not as all out funky. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Booker T & The MGsMelting Pot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work! The record has Book & Co taking off with a stretched-out jazzy sound – carving expanded grooves that are filled with sweet organ solos, choppy guitar riffs, and some incredibly tight rhythm lines – more than enough to make this set a standout in the collection of any beat digger! Includes the massive "Melting Pot" – an oft-sampled jam that runs for over 8 minutes long – plus "LA Jazz Song", which features amazingly tight guitar work from Steve Cropper, and the nice cuts "Fuquawi" and "Chicken Pox". Other titles include "Back Home", "Sunny Monday", and "Hi Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

Two lesser known tracks from Booker T – but both nice! "Slim Jenkins" has kind of a slight western tinge on the guitar – stepping around a saloon floor with the kind of edgey approach you'd expect from a guy named "Slim"! "Groovin" is a nice instrumental take on the big crossover hit – done with easily sliding organ and guitar that kind of hint at the later Melting Pot years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roots rock but with a strongly soulful undercurrent – thanks to key late 60s Stax production from Donald Duck Dunn and Don Nix, both of whom make the record sound a lot hipper than many other similar sets from the time! The record showcases the singing and songwriting talents of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett – a pair who were hyped heavily by the rock scene of their era, but who also step out here with equally soulful appeal – almost a blue-eyed soul take on the Stax sound of the late 60s! Of course, it helps that the pair get plenty of help on the record from folks like Booker T & The MGs, The Memphis Horns, Isaac Hayes, and William Bell – but their own efforts are pretty great too, as heard on tracks that include "My Baby Specializes", "Things Get Better", "We Can Love", "Just Plain Beautiful", "Everybody Loves A Winner", and "Pour Your Love On Me".

A really strong album from Lalah Hathaway – profoundly addressing her legacy on this second album for Stax by covering a Donny Hathaway classic and paying tribute to him with the album art – all the while standing up proudly as a soul music veteran with a proud legacy that's all her own! If you thought Lalah was going to go old school style on Where It All Begins – rest assured that this is contemporary soul music – though crafted with a timeless sensibility. There's some nicely thumping numbers and sweeter, more soaring jams – with Lalah's smoky voice carrying it all the way. Lalah's move to Stax continues to be a major creative win! Includes "Strong Woman", "Where It All Began", "My Everything", "Small Of My Back", "Always Love You", "This Could Be Love", Wrong Way", "I'm Coming Back" feat Rochelle Ferrell, "Dreamland", and a fresh take on the Donny Hathaway classic "You Were Meant For Me". 12 tracks in all.

Drums are nice and hard – and titles include the killer "The Dryer (parts 1 & 2)", plus "Razorback Circus", "Robot", "Midnight At Riley's", "Don't Tell Me Nothing About My Woman", "Patch It Up", and "I'll Be Your Doctor Man".

You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from the James Brown camp!) – but the whole album's great, and filled with raw female soul material produced by Wardell Quezquerque with an edge that's a bit harder than the usual Stax set of the time! Titles include "Mr Big Stuff", "Take Him", "Think It Over", "Your Six Bit Change", and "You City Slicker". LP, Vinyl record album

A great bit of Memphis funk from the 70s! The 60s version of The Mar-Keys was more of a rocking instrumental group – but the 70s version has a much harder sound, and a lot more of a tendency to funk things up. This album features them running through instrumental versions of a number of older Memphis soul hits – like "Soul Man" or "Heads or Tails" – plus some tasty original numbers, like "Black", "One With Sugar", and "Coffee Cup". All tracks have a horn-heavy sound with a nice deep bottom – and plenty of good work on the guitar! LP, Vinyl record album

The group was a unique assemblage of musicians from both sides of the Memphis tracks – coming together in the studio with a hard-wailing mix of soul, rock, and R&B – a great bridge between Memphis Stax and the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s. Titles are all pretty playful, and feature lots of sax and organ lines – on tunes that include "Night Before", "Morning After", "About Noon", "Hold It", "Last Night", "Sticks & Stones", and "One Degree North".

Teena Marie on Stax Records – something we never thought we'd see, but which we're happy to applaud, given the strength of this set! Teena's arranging and producing herself here – and the record has some of the best tight soul modes of other recent sets in the Stax revival – an approach that nods towards the classic, but is definitely contemporary – yet never in ways that are clunky or commercial. We're surprised at how much we dig some of the tunes on the set – and although Teena gets help from MC Lyte, Faith Evans, Howard Hewett, and George Duke – it's clear that she's at her best when standing alone on the record. Titles include "Ms Coretta", "Black Cool", "Soldier", "The Rose N Thorn", "What U Got 4 Me", "Congo Square", "You Baby", and "Can't Last A Day". CD

Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders! Everybody Wanna Live On may very well be the best album ever by this sweet southern vocal group – produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, who'd always had a big hand in the group's sound. The record's got a style that reminds us of mid 70s Manhattans, but perhaps with more of an edge on some of the vocals, especially on the more uptempo tracks. Includes the great cut "Please Don't Try (To Take Me Away To The Sky)", with a nice electric piano groove and funky vocals, plus "(Call Me) The Traveling Man", "Sweet Sweetning", "Baby It's You", "Everybody Wanna Live On", and "Your Sweet Love Is A Blessing".

Otis ReddingLive At The Whisky A Go Go – The Complete Recordings (6CD set) ... CD
Stax, 1966. New Copy 6 CDs ... $45.99 59.98
The complete document of a legendary live recording by Otis Redding – material that not only shows a slightly different side of Redding than his studio albums for Stax – but which also continued to flow out in parts, issued after his too-early death, as a way of keeping his music alive! During the 60s, as Otis recorded his classics for Stax, he was also spending an insane amount of time performing live – hitting the road constantly, as live performance was the way he could really make a living – to a point where his presence on the stage was incredible, and Redding had blossomed into a hell of an entertainer, instead of just a simple singer of songs! The power of that level of performance really comes through here – material that comes from three nights of live performance in Los Angeles, with a huge amount of work appearing here for the first time ever, especially in correct order and format. Over the course of the whopping 6CDs in the set, Otis moves through familiar numbers, some key covers, and a few surprising tracks – and a number of selections are even longer than usual. Redding seems to especially take off on his covers – turning in extended versions of cuts like "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and "Satisfaction" – but the whole thing is great. 65 tracks in all, with great notes and a poster too!

Stax always did a pretty good job of shopping its big artists overseas – where they met with extremely enthusiastic response, as you'll hear in this classic live album recorded by Otis Redding! The basic structure of the songs is very similar in time and presentation to the studio versions – but the band is very lively, many numbers are taken at faster tempos, and Otis is working himself to death to please the screaming crowd. Titles include "Day Tripper", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Respect", "Can't Turn You Loose", "My Girl", and "Shake". LP, Vinyl record album

Stax, 1966. Very Good ... $16.99
Sublime early Stax work from Sam & Dave – the kind of record that forever changed the way the male voice was used in group soul music! The rhythms on the tunes are totally raw – bass, drums, and guitar that are kind of fused into a dirty funky bottom that proves a perfect foil for the leaping vocal mode of the pair – a chunky sort of blend that was one of the boldest new sounds to come out of the Memphis scene of the time. Sam & Dave also get some key support here from another important duo – that of Isaac Hayes & David Porter, who wrote a good portion of tracks on the set, and were no doubt instrumental in the groove! A killer, and the sort of record that changed male duet (and group) singing for generations to come! Titles include "You Got Me Hummin", "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby", "Use Me", and "Sweet Pains" – plus a great cover of "I'm Your Puppet". PLEASE NOTE: there is an abrupt edit at the end of "Soothe Me" and "Just Can't Get Enough", which is how the record was originally pressed, probably from masters cut for 45s. LP, Vinyl record album

Melvin Van PeeblesSweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song ... LP
Stax, 1971. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the most fantastic soundtracks of the 70s – and maybe even of all time – thanks to a non-stop blast of insane styles and grooves – all quite different than other blacksploitation records of the time! For this, his masterpiece film, Melvin Van Peebles composed a non-stop collage of crazy sounds and funky jams, played by himself and a very young Earth, Wind, & Fire – then pasted together in a pastiche of music, dialogue, and sound effects that serve as an audio document of the film! If you've ever seen the movie – and even if you haven't – you'll find that the soundtrack works as a 40 minute version of the film, shifting back and forth with a loose narrative progression. Of course, the real appeal is the funky music – and you'll hear more than enough of that on tracks like "Sweetback's Theme", "Hoppin John", "Come On Fee", and "Sweetback Getting it Uptight".

VariousMemphis Gold Vol 1 ... LP
Stax, 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Back in the 60s, Memphis Gold was Stax Records Gold – and there's no finer proof of that fact than this classic compilation! The set's got a funky-lookin' Buddah on the cover – and is overflowing with classic early Stax/Volt hits. Titles include "My Lover's Prayer" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long" by Otis Redding, "Don't Have To Shop Around" and "I Want Someone" by The Mad Lads, "No Time To Lose" and "Let Me Be Good To You" by Carla Thomas, "Philly Dog" by the Mar-Keys, and "Boot Leg" by Booker T & The MGs.

Stax/Pye (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great UK tribute to the mighty Al Jackson – the man whose drums were an important part of Stax Records at the start, and who then rose to much more creative force within the label! The set features tracks with Al on drums, and Al in the production chair – work by Little Milton, Soul Children, Booker & The MGs, Johnny Taylor, Staple Singers, Shirley Brown, and William Bell!

✨✧ Bar-KaysMoney Talks ... LP
Stax, 1978. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Bar-Kays' last album for Stax – most likely recorded in earlier years – and a surprisingly funky set that still holds onto the group of the group's earlier 70s work, while also pointing the way towards the future! The overall sound isn't nearly as slick as in the Mercury years, and the album still makes good use of heavy guitar on the grooves, as well as some of the jazzier instrumental flourishes (especially on trumpet) that set the group apart from the rest of the funky pack. Tracks are all quite long, and still heavily focused on funk – and titles include "Holy Ghost", in two versions, plus "Monster", "Feelin Alright", "Mean Mistreater", and "Money Talks". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ William BellBound To Happen ... LP
Stax, 1969. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from William Bell – a record that has him really unfolding and growing at the end of the 60s – taking off with a new sort of energy that we hardly would have expected a few years before! The sound here is nicely deep and mature – still in a classic Memphis mode, but with nods to some of the changes going on in soul all around the country from in the 60s – a style that sifts in some of the best righteous elements from other scenes, then wraps them up nicely with a sweet Tennessee glow. The album was the first to include Bell's excellent track "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" – which has a vibe that's sort of a mix of East Coast and Memphis soul – and other titles include covers of "Western Union Man" and "Everyday People", plus a number of great post-1968 Stax tunes, most of which were written by Booker T. Jones – including "Johnny I Love You", "All God's Children Got Soul", and "A Smile Can't Hide". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsHip Hug-Her (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, and the set includes loads of great original number written by the group – the kind of cool tunes they most likely cooked up while jamming live in the studio! These gems include the seminal "Hip Hug Her" – plus "Carnaby Street", "Booker's Notion", "Soul Sanction", "Double Or Nothing", and "Slim Jenkins' Place". But the covers are groovy too – and include a version of "Pigmy", plus "Groovin" and "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsMelting Pot ... LP
Stax, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work! The record has Book & Co taking off with a stretched-out jazzy sound – carving expanded grooves that are filled with sweet organ solos, choppy guitar riffs, and some incredibly tight rhythm lines – more than enough to make this set a standout in the collection of any beat digger! Includes the massive "Melting Pot" – an oft-sampled jam that runs for over 8 minutes long – plus "LA Jazz Song", which features amazingly tight guitar work from Steve Cropper, and the nice cuts "Fuquawi" and "Chicken Pox". Other titles include "Back Home", "Sunny Monday", and "Hi Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsSoul Party ... CD
Stax/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare European-only collection of work by Booker T & The MGs – and one that features a fair bit of live material, too – 7 of the album's 12 tracks – which almost makes the whole thing stand out like some obscure live record from the group! There's a definite sense of sear to the live cuts that moves way past the studio material – a sharp edge that has some heavier drumming and lots of dark edges on the guitar and organ parts – still played with all the tightness of the group's famous singles, but maybe some of the headier styles you'd guess from their image on the cover. Live cuts include "Outrage", Booker Loo", "Gimme Some Lovin", "Tic Tac Toe", "Hip Hug Her", and "Greeen Onions" – and studio tracks include "Mo Onions", "My Sweet Potato", "Chinese Checkers", and "One Mint Julep".

✨✧ DramaticsBest Of The Dramatics ... CD
Volt/Stax, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of work by The Dramatics – featuring their greatest tracks from the early Stax years – seminal work that helped redefine the group soul sound of the 70s! There's a great blend of southern and east coast harmony modes here – and the package is filled with the group's best moments from their Stax/Volt albums – mostly from the first two releases. CD features 16 titles that include "Toast To The Fool", "Highway From Heaven", "And I Panicked", "I Dedicate My Life To You", "Fell For You", "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get", "Get Up & Get Down", "Hey You! Get Off My Mountain", "In The Rain", and "The Devil Is Dope". Who could ask for more? CD

✨✧ Hot Sauce featuring Rhonda WashingtonGood Woman Turning Bad – The Complete Volt Recordings ... CD
Stax (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost album from the legendary Stax Records – a full set of tracks from the deep soul group Hot Sauce – planned as a record of its own in the final years of the label, but never issued at the time! Hot Sauce were one of the funkiest groups on Stax in the early 70s – a wickedly badass group who sported great lead vocals from Rhonda Washington – a singer who really knew how to stay on the groove and send the whole thing home! The work on this set is a great evolution of the Stax groove – and shows where the label might have gone in terms of 70s funk, had they stayed the course – and although the album's long overdue to get released, we're plenty happy to finally have it out after all these years. Many tracks were issued over the years as singles, and the set also features a few tracks not intended for the album too – titles that include "Stop Dogging Me", "Funny", "Mama's Baby", "I'll Kill A Brick", "Good Woman Turning Bad", "I Can't Let You Go", "Echoes From The Past", and "I Can't Win For Losing".

✨✧ Leon WareMoonride ... CD
Stax, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New material from one of our favorite soul artists ever – a laidback set of mellow soul tunes that's pure Leon Ware all the way through! The style is almost a contemporary update of Ware's classic Musical Massage for Motown in the 70s – a slinky, sensuous set of tracks, delivered in a space that's far from cliches that can sometimes hold back this sort of music – very firmly in the hands of one of its true originators, still going strong after all these years! The professional placement of the record is a nice contrast to some of Leon's more home-made efforts of recent years – and although things are tight, they're never commercially slick – just smooth, mellow, and flowing with that amazing Ware-styled sound. Titles include "Just Take Your Time", "Loceans", "Hold Tight", "I Never Loved So Much", "A Whisper Away", "To Serve You", "Soon", "Urban Nights", and "From Inside", which features guest keys by Amp Fiddler!
