It all started for me with that fabulous ‘Green Onions’, recorded in 1962. An R&B classic.
It knocked me out when I heard it. They were a fabulously tight band and certainly made a statement back in the early sixties both as the Stax house band behind all those brilliant Soul acts and the fact that they were a multicultural band. I just loved Steve Cropper’s guitar sound.
When I was in Memphis I visited Stax Studios. Awesome.
