The Stax Records house band for most of the 1960s, the instrumental outfit Booker T. & The MG's were responsible for the distinctive sound of recordings by artists from Albert King to Otis Redding. The racially mixed group were a symbol of the musical innocence of the early '60s, and, while Stax's relaxed atmosphere couldn't survive the racial turmoil of the post-Martin Luther King assassination South, the MG's continued performing until 1972. This best-of is a representative selection of the band's eclectic '60s output, including their best-known hit, "Green Onions," as well as the gorgeous "Time Is Tight," and one of their many Beatles covers, "Lady Madonna" (the band devoted an entire album, 1970's MCLEMORE AVENUE, to re-recording the Fabs' ABBEY ROAD).
