Periodic Feature: Baby Boomer Fun Stuff

Growing up, I was a big fan of what we then called "soul music". We did a lot of dancing at high school functions, and I would imagine your experiences were similar.
2007 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of Stax/Volt records, the label of Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, and the late Otis Redding.

Here is a live performance from The Paris Olympia in 1967, (Time 4:15), of the musicians who backed nearly all of those hits, Booker T and the MG's, with their 1962 solo classic "Green Onions".


(Youtube/Google removes clips from time to time for copyright issues. If this clip is missing, then: Lots More Stax/Volt, and Booker T performances at this link.

The Players: Organ, Booker T Jones, Bass, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Guitar, Steve Cropper, and Drums, the late Al Jackson jr.

Dunn, Cropper, and the sound of Stax records went on of course to be featured in The Blues Brothers films.
