Booker T And The MG’s – Green Onions

(180 gram audiophile pressing. The debut album from Booker T & The MG’s and only the fourth album ever released by the legendary Stax label (the previous three had all appeared on the Atlantic label as part of their deal, so technically this is the first proper Stax album too!), ‘Green Onions’ is little short of a tour de force. Whilst many albums from fifty years ago now sound dated and stuck in the decade from which they originate, ‘Green Onions’ is one of the true exceptions. Led by Booker T. Jones on the keyboards, the sound is rounded out by Lewis Steinberg on bass, Steve Cropper on guitar and Al Jackson Jr. on drums. With Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn later replacing Steinberg, The MG’s would become the house band for Stax, as important to the label as The Funk Brothers were to Motown, but the difference was that the MG’s got their own recording deal, with ‘Green Onions’ the glorious result)
