Various: Stax Revue - Live At The 5-4 Ballroom 1965 (CD)

(Ace Records) 13 tracks, recorded live at the 5/4 Ballroom on Aug.7 & 8, 1965!
 -
Let me tell you a story. It was August 1965 and the, then fledgling, Stax Records was finally turning into a professional record company, with the hiring of Al Bell as a promotions man.

Up until then the promotional side of the business had been handled by their distributor, Atlantic. To develop more of a profile on the West Coast a show was arranged at the 54 (pronounced five four) Ballroom, the legendary dance hall in the Watts area of L.A. which had hosted every major blues, R&B and soul act since the fifties. The D.J. for the night and part organiser, was the Magnificent Montague, whose catch phrase at the time was 'burn, baby, burn'.

Throughout the show Montague stalked the stage exhorting, first Booker T & The Mgs, then The Mad Lads, The Astors, Carla Thomas, William Bell, The Mar-Keys, and finally Rufus Thomas to 'burn, baby, burn'. The set was hot, as you might imagine with the MGs cooking on a seriously re-fried 'Green Onions' and a wicked version of 'Bootleg', The Mad Lads and The Astors performing their hits 'Don't Have To Shop Around' and 'Candy', William Bell getting seriously sanctified on 'You Don't Miss Your Water' and Rufus doing and walking the dog along with the audience in his own inimitable fashion. All the while Montague is yelling 'burn, baby, burn'. A week later the Watts riots broke and they did.....'burn, baby, burn'.

Stax felt at the time that it was inappropriate to go ahead with the projected release of a live album from the shows. So here you have it 27 years later, the legendary Stax Revue Live At The 54 Ball-room-.-what can I say but......... 'Burn Baby, Burn!!!!!'
