When the bankrupt Stax closed its doors in January of '76, only two of the artists featured here had even [i]seen[/i] the inside of a studio — fact is, half a dozen of them hadn't even been [i]born[/i]. But just like another expired Memphis music legend by the name of Presley, Stax keeps showing up in all the unexpected places. Places such as classic rock radio, where a 10-kilowatt sparkplug named Van Morrison swaggers and squalls through "Domino" like a bantam rooster in a puffy-chested strut of satisfaction. Or on the chitlin' circuit, where the third towel of the night can't [i]begin[/i] to soak up all the sweat-drenched Southern soul that streams from every pore of Mel Waiters' bleached-blond bulk in "Hole In the Wall." Even among the generation writing soul's [i]next[/i] chapter — whether it's Amy Winehouse, pacing the floor with last-cigarette-in-the-pack desperation through "Wake Up Alone" or the Raconteurs' Jack White, muscling aside the Muscle Shoals-style horns to give vent to his inner hellhound in "Many Shades of Black" — you hear the backbeat and the heartbeat of Stax . . . still keeping time.
