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

Includes 20 original single versions assembled for the first time ever on 2LP!

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

The first 29 single sides Booker T. & The MG's recorded for Stax, featuring "Green Onions," "Boot-Leg," Hip Hug-Her," and "My Sweet Potato" are among the 15 chart hits featured on this collection! Mastered by Dan Hersch at d2 Mastering, with tape research and sourcing by Mike Johnson and Aaron Kannowski with help from Bill Inglot to ensure these are the original mono single versions. Ed Osborne contributes detailed notes and disographical information, and the set's produced by Real Gone Music's own Gordon Anderson. Double LP set pressed on red vinyl!

The house band at Stax, Booker T. & The MG's were so good, so tight, that each member — guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, drummer Al Jackson, Jr., and keyboardist/bandleader Booker T. Jones — is a legend in his own right. Playing behind such superstars as Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, and Wilson Pickett, the group forever defined the sound of Southern soul. And on their own — man, they just couldn't be topped, with a total of 12 Pop and 15 R&B hits during their unparalleled tenure at Stax. That's why they are the greatest instrumental R&B band of all time...and, not incidentally, a potent symbol of racial integration and harmony from a time when such diverse outfits were rare. Real Gone Music is very proud to bring you every single side Booker T. & The MG's recorded for Stax on two separate volumes released on double LP.
