Booker T. & The MG's The Best Of Booker T. & The MG's 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso & Kevin Gray From Original Atlantic Records Tapes!
As a young teenager growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, Booker T. Jones had the
amazing talent to play a number of instruments... and he played them well.
Mastering them well enough to land him work at the famous Stax Records label as
a sideman, while still attending high school! It was during this time he met up
with future guitar legend Steve Cropper and drummer great Al Jackson and later
formed the Stax wrecking crew known as Booker T. & The M.G.’s.
This amazing quartet, whom later added the amazing Donald “Duck” Dunn on bass
went on to record a treasure trove of funk, soul and rock masterpieces, which
have gone on to become some of the greatest sides ever waxed in modern soul
With chart topping soul rockers like Green Onions, Red Beans And Rice and Hip
Hug-Her, the good folks at Atlantic honored this famed quartet with their own
greatest hits album, the magnificent The Best Of Booker T. & The M.G.’s in 1968.
This original album has been out of print for many years, and for several
decades in the vinyl format... that is until now.
Friday Music is proud to offer the original Atlantic Records masterpiece The
Best Of Booker T. & The M.G.’s for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl.
