Booker T. & The M.G.'s: In The Christmas Spirit (180g Edition)

LP auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von Booker T & The M.G.'s - In The Christmas Spirit (180g Edition)

Booker T. & the MG's ' the heart, soul and pulse of Stax Records ' cut their incredible holiday album, In the Christmas Spirit in mid-1966. With their unique, soulful groove, Jones, Cropper, Dunn and Jackson interpret 12 holiday classics, infusing each and every track with funk, taste and style. Just listen to that chiming organ, that pulsing bass, that ringing guitar'and is that 12 drummers drumming' No, it's just Al Jackson, the man with a beat so big that the elves can hear it all the up in the North Pole! To guarantee the funkiest Christmas ever, make sure that you keep In the Christmas Spirit by your side throughout the Yuletide.

This labor of love from Sundazed Music is sourced from the original analog (and fruitcake free!) Stax Records masters, pressed on vinyl pure as the driven snow, wrapped in the festive original artwork and hung by the chimney with care. Wait, the chimney'!'! Oh, no, the fire's still burning'quick, throw some eggnog on it!!!

'There's no reason to believe the little drummer boy didn't break into a danceable groove every now and again--and no cause to think that Christmas music has to be listened to from an easy chair. This legendary rhythm & blues combo spreads the spirit of the season in much the same way it did its many chart- toppers--with a greasy backbeat and a heaping helping of cool keyboards courtesy of Booker T himself. Originally issued in 1966, this disc lets the MGs strut through deftly arranged versions of Christmas standards like 'Winter Wonderland' and 'Silver Bells' with sass, class, and more than enough panache to keep it on your system through the New Year.' -David Sprague

Booker T. & The MG's

Boot-Leg

Booker T. & The MG's

Boot-Leg

Unlike Motown's Funk Brothers, shrouded in anonymity to ensure they wouldn't abandon their session duties for greener pastures, Booker T. & The MG's were encouraged by Stax Records to cut instrumentals when they weren't cooking behind Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas, and William Bell as the Memphis studio's house rhythm section. The skin-tight quartet blasted all the way to #3 pop and the peak of the R&B hit parade their first time out on Stax in 1962 with the driving Green Onions, their encores Mo' Onions and Soul Dressing making smaller impacts.

The MG's originally consisted of organist Booker T. Jones (born November 12, 1944 in Memphis), guitarist Steve Cropper (born October 21, 1942 near Dora, Missouri but raised in Memphis from age nine), drummer Al Jackson, Jr. (born November 27, 1934 in Memphis), and bassist Lewie Steinberg, though by 1965 he'd been replaced by Cropper's childhood buddy and former Mar-Keys bandmate Donald 'Duck' Dunn, born November 24, 1941 in Memphis. "I went in and played on some Booker T. stuff, so then they asked me to join the band," says Dunn. "It was a pleasure to go in the studio, and just to play with Al Jackson every day. He just made you a better musician." Agrees Cropper, "He was definitely the best drummer around."

Quite a few of the integrated band's instrumentals were studio concoctions. "You never know what you're going to come up with when you sit down to write. A lot of those ideas came about by trying to come up with a groove for another song," says Steve. "A lot of things we would write really didn't seem to work for a full vocal idea, but they worked as riffs. A lot of the other times, whenever we exhausted the ideas that we brought to the session, then we'd sit there and try to kind of come up with grooves and enhance them a little bit, get Al to look at it from a different perspective, and try to change the beat and do something different with it." 

Boot-Leg was The MG's' hottest seller since Green Onions at #10 R&B and #58 pop. Not only was it Dunn's first recording as an MG, Booker T. wasn't there when they cut it. "That's Isaac Hayes playing organ," reveals Duck. "Booker was in college, and was supposed to get back." Also on hand was Charles 'Packy' Axton, son of Stax co-owner Estelle Axton and tenor saxman with The Mar-Keys, the horn-powered combo that gave Stax one of its first major hits in 1961 (when it was still called Satellite), the infectious instrumental Last Night.  A jaunty mix of Cropper's chopping axe, Hayes' supple organ, and Axton's greasy sax, Boot-Leg was originally intended to be a Mar-Keys release, since it sported a horn section. Booker T. soon returned from the University of Indiana, and the MG's extended their hit streak into the next decade.
