The greatest instrumental R&B band of all time!

As the Stax house band, Booker T. & The MG's defined the sound of Southern Soul!

On their own they scored 12 pop and 15 R&B hits for Stax

Two LP set comes inside a gatefold album jacket, red vinyl pressing!

Real Gone Music already brought you 29 of the 49 single sides The MG's recorded for Stax on The Complete Stax Singles Vol. 1; now we're back with the other 20, assembled-for the first time ever! — after a painstaking search for the best sources available, and, like on all of our singles collections, carefully vetted (by engineer Aaron Kannowski) to ensure that the versions you're hearing are exactly what disc jockeys were spinning off their 7-inch singles on to the airwaves back in the day.

In this case, that means the first 15 songs on this 2LP set are in mono, the last five stereo, all discographically documented in meticulous fashion by liner note writer Ed Osborne, whose essay maps every move Booker T. & The MG's made during the late ‘60s through the early ‘70s and beyond. But most of all, The Complete Stax Singles Vol. 2 (1968-1974) is one incredible listen, featuring such classic songs as "Time Is Tight," "Soul-Limbo," "Melting Pot," their versions of Domenic Frontiere's "Hang ‘Em High," The Beatles' "Something," and Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson," a bunch of hard-to-find B-sides, and more, all played by basically the best band that ever lived! Some of the greatest and grooviest R&B instrumentals ever recorded.
