Funk & Soul Wednesdays – Booker T. & the MG’s

bookertmgs

There’s no better way to kick-off Funk & Soul Wednesdays than with a listen to Booker T. & the MG’s.  This instrumental band represents two of my favorite things, the South (Memphis to be exact) and Stax Records.  Booker T. & the MG’s were the originators of the Stax sound and backed many Stax artists including Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas and Wilson Pickett.  “Green Onions” was the first album ever released on the Stax label and the title song was the groups biggest hit.
