Booker T. & The MG's smoked the charts once again in 1967 with the fabulously slinky "Hip Hug-Her" - just like they'd never left. As house band for Memphis' Stax Records, backing Otis Redding, Sam & Dave and Wilson Pickett, the MG's had written the book on instrumental soul music, and the Hip Hug-Her album impeccably testifies to the greatness of Booker T. Jones, Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and Alvin Jackson. MG's versions of the Young Rascals' "Groovin'" and Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" were so downright in-the-groove, they became big hits themselves all over again. Another lip-smackingly delicious exact reproduction from Sundazed, on 180-gram vinyl, from the absolute vintage analog tapes!
Selections: Hip Hug-Her, Soul Sanction, Get Ready, More, Double Or Nothing, Carnaby St., Slim Jenkins’ Joint, Pigmy, Groovin’, Booker’s Notion, Sunny.
