Paul Adams Listening Theme: STAX!!!

Hi all,

For the next week or so I’m going to concentrate on the Southern soul released on a record label that was the main rival to Motown (LT7) during the 60’s – Stax. Stax (with it’s partnership with Atlantic Records) released albums by Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Wilson Picket, Eddie Floyd, Rufus and Carla Thomas… the list goes on ( backed by the house band Booker T. & the M.G’s. I love the music but not that familiar with some of the lesser known acts.

For those that are interested, there’s an excellent series of podcasts telling the story of Stax which you can listen to here:

I’m going to try (as usual) to listen to studio albums instead of “Best Of”s. So if you can recommend any please let me know.

Cheers, Paul
