Comment:

Like cross-town kin Sun Records before it, Stax [i]defined[/i] its time and place, and even those who never set foot in 926 East McLemore Avenue kept their ears keenly tuned to the sounds pounding against its walls. [i]"Do you like good music?"[/i] How could [i]anyone[/i] argue with sandpaper-larynxed Arthur Conley, as he name-checked a galaxy of superstars in the Otis Redding-produced soulabration of "Sweet Soul Music," before validating each one with a chest-thumping "Oh, yeah!" It's the rarest of singers who dares challenge Redding in a zero-to-heartbreak match race, but homegrown Memphis shouter James Carr drops the hammer — and connects — in the bone-deep misery of "Pouring Water On a Drowning Man," right down to his sad-bastard chuckle of despair. And the Right Reverend Al Green, stranded on a tightrope between sin and salvation, plunges his butter-cream vocal headlong into the grits 'n' gravy funk of "Take Me to the River," spurred on by MG's drummer Al Jackson, Jr. — the very same guy who backboned Stax's "Green Onions" and "Try a Little Tenderness." From James Brown to Etta James, we've got a soul-studded selection of Stax soundalikes — signed, sealed, and [i]delivered[/i].
