Otis Redding, Steve Cropper, Rufus Thomas, Isaac Hayes; the Stax roster wasn't merely loaded with killer artists; it was also packed with world-class songwriters. They [i]wrote[/i], and the whole world listened. If you ever wondered just when Aretha Franklin became the Queen of Soul, look no further than her her cover — yes, [i]cover[/i] — of Otis Redding's hit "Respect," an open-throated, career-making roar of independence. The Blues Brothers not only reintroduce one of soul music's best-ever songs, but also two of its greatest players — the song's original guitar/bass duo of Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn — in their mission-from-God cover of Sam & Dave's "Soul Man." Heavy D & The Boyz detonate a Louis Vuitton satchelful of bass in an axle-rattling hip-hop remake of Jean Knight's sass-mouthed putdown "Mr. Big Stuff (Remix)." And it's [i]another[/i] Jones — Booker T. — who inspires Clash frontman Mick Jones in a surf-punk-meets-soul retool of the MG's' instrumental smash "Time Is Tight." But don't stop there — from Keith Sweat to the Rolling Stones, we've got a whole second generation of Soulsville's greatest hits, reinterpreted by Stax's stacks of fanatics.
