Product Description:

There have been few backing bands in the history of rock that were as great as Booker T. & the MG's. As the "Stax band" of the '60s, the quartet's most impressive contribution to popular music was backing some of soul music's greatest names -- Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, etc. But Booker T. & the MG's also issued their own all-instrumental recordings -- scoring quite a few sizable hits on their own. While 2003's Green Onions and Other Hits doesn't include every single Booker T. highlight (at only a mere ten tracks in length, how could it?), it does include some of the band's best-known selections, including the groovy title track (which was used to great effect in the movie American Graffiti), "Hip Hug-Her" (used splendidly in another movie, Barfly), and "Boot-Leg," which features some great Jimi Hendrix-ish guitar courtesy of Steve Cropper. There are a multitude of more extensive Booker T. & the MG's collections out on the market (the single-disc The Very Best of Booker T. & the MG's, the box set Time Is Tight, etc.), but for an affordable sampler of the fantastic Booker T. & the MG's, give Green Onions and Other Hits a try. ~ Greg Prato
