Booker T. & The MG's: And Now ! (180g Edition)

(1966 'Stax') Sundazed

And Now!, Booker T. & the MG's third album, marked a major change in the band's lineup with Donald 'Duck' Dunn replacing Lewie Steinberg on bass. The addition of Dunn's funkier style is in full evidence on tracks like 'In the Midnight Hour' and 'Think,' the latter song also featuring blistering Telecaster licks from six-string stalwart Steve Cropper. The balance of the album includes original songs , like Top Twenty R&B single 'My Sweet Potato,' and current chart hits, done in that inimitable MG style. With Booker T.'s evocative keyboard lines and Al Jackson's propulsive percussion, this was a band of individual virtuosos that became an even greater whole. And now'get ready for the soul jam!

This magnificent, made-in-Memphis LP is sourced from the original analog Stax Records master tapes, pressed High-Definition vinyl and outfitted in original artwork so sharp and clean that you would swear it just came off the rack at Lansky Brothers Department Store!

"Booker T. & The MG's"

Booker T and the MGs. Booker T Jones, born on Dec. 11, 1944, in Memphis, multi-instrumentalist, primarily key-board, and the Memphis Group — Steve Cropper (born Oct. 21, 1941) guitar, originally Louis Steinberg on bass, later re-placed by Donald 'Duck' Dunn (born Nov. 24, 1941), Al Jackson (born Nov. 17, 1945) drums — were for ten years the nucleus of the houseband for Stax records — the corner-stone of the company, its sound, and its success.

Originally the rhythm section of the Mar-Keys, the four men were recorded at an impromptu session minus horns, resulting in 'Green Onions', a bluesy organ riff slashed through by Cropper's razor-sharp tones, riding on a simple but persuasive bass and drum line. Issued on the new sub-sidiary Volt, it was transferred to the parent Stax label and distributed by Atlantic to a million sales in August, 1962. Much tighter than the average small R&B combo, their eco-nomic and expressive interplay of ideas was effective on moody, small-hours blues or hard-driving dance tunes, dis-played in over a dozen albums and twenty more singles, in-cluding 'Bootleg' (1965), 'Hip Hug-Her', `Groovin" (1967), `Soul Limbo' (1968), and 'Time Is Tight' (1969) from their soundtrack to the film 'Uptight'. Even more impressive was their contribution to virtually every hit created in the Stax studios in the Sixties.

They backed not only the company's own stars, but also provided other Atlantic artists with the most consistently successful answer to the Motown Sound. In 1971, tired of the pressures in a company which had long outgrown its intimate beginnings, Booker T escaped to a new career with his wife, Priscilla Coolidge, on the West Coast; Dunn stayed on in Memphis; Cropper has become a roving writer /producer and sessionman. Jackson remained a leading session drummer until his death in 1975.
