Stax-o-trax

Recommended Posts

I had a stax afternoon - and it makes a change from motown, so I thought I'd list a couple of my favourite stax trax and see if anyone else has any as well!

Lovey Dovey - Otis and Carla

And two of the early ones from the relaunch on the yellow label with the finger-snap - Soul Limbo and Private Number

Some good songs there folks!

I must admit that when I first got "Hit The Road Stax" I couldnt understand why Carla Thomas' Gee Whiz was included, why on earth include an almost doo wop track on a soul album?

One track I did love though was " Last Night " by The Mar Keys, great piece of music!

Singles that I loved on Blue Stax included " Happy" by William Bell, and "Let Me Come on Home" by Otis

Wich just had me whistling 'Dock of the Bay'

Did you see the 'hit the road Stax' show over Christmas together with the history of Stax? I think it was all on BBC 4 - brilliant stuff!

Time is tight was definitely one of my favourites - Booker T - Great guy, great band, although is Wedding Album wasn't quite the best thing he ever did. Worth a few quid now though. I sold my copy to selecta for about a quid!

Talking of things 'Staxy' I was in New york in September and went into a record shop in Greenwich village. I was specifically after Apollo Saturday Night recorded on November 16th 1963. (ATCO SD 33-159) I had it in the 60's but it was nicked. This fellah just walked over to the rack - flick, flick, flick, here you are sir $30. A steal. His website says that he has 1,000,000 records. I think there was a couple of hundred thousand in the shop. Wall to wall vinyl. If anyone is interested, the place is called House of Oldies. The website is:- www.houseofoldies.com

By the way the Apollo Theatre is awesome and sent shivers down me back when I walked in.
