On 1969's The Booker T. Set, the famous Memphis group placed its distinctive stamp on 11 pop and r&b hits of the period, including Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson," which became a pop and r&b hit for the instrumental foursome.
Booker T. Jones's mellow-toned organ swells, Steve Cropper's razor-sharp lead and rhythm guitar parts, Duck Dunn's loping bass lines, and Al Jackson, Jr.'s rock-solid drum grooves transform each song into a nicely seasoned slice of Southern soul. The empathy that these four musicians had for each other as they subtly interlocked their parts was uncanny-and remains unsurpassed.
Includes "The Horse," "Love Child," "Sing a Simple Song," "Lady Madonna," "Mrs. Robinson," "This Guy's in Love with You," "Light My Fire," "Michelle," "You're All I Need to Get By," "I've Never Found a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)," "It's Your Thing" and more! With Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Al Jackson, Jr.
