          As Stax Records' top male artist, it was only natural that Otis Redding would team up with Stax's top female singer, Carla Thomas. The soulful twosome generated considerable musical sparks on this 1967 release, which produced a pair of sizzling hit singles, the sassy "Tramp" and a hard-driving reading of Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood." With Booker T. and the MGs, the Memphis Horns and Isaac Hayes providing typically eloquent support, King and Queen also features the frisky duo numbers "Lovey...

            Considered by many soul connoisseurs to be Otis Redding's finest and most fully realized LP, 1966's Otis Blue delivers a compelling encapsulation of all of the qualities that made Redding the greatest soul performer of his era. In addition to the artist's self-penned classics "Respect" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long," Otis Blue spotlights the artist's peerless interpretive skills, as he puts his dynamic stamp upon such iconic tunes as the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction,"...

              Otis Redding's fifth album, whose cover bears the full title Complete and Unbelievable: The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul, more than lives up to that grandiose monicker.

The deepest roots of surf music in California go back to San Luis Obispo, not the Greater Los Angeles area, to bands that considered themselves rhythm & blues, not "surf."

                                                    Based around numbers he was performing in his live shows, 1963's On the Bandstand features a mix of self-penned songs and then-current country favorites. Besides Buck, the spotlight shines on individual band members throughout the album. Speaking of the band, they were mere months away from being named The Buckaroos, courtesy of Merle Haggard who served briefly as their bass player before moving on to his own solo career. The sole hit on the original version of the album was "Kickin' Our...

The title cut, which hit #10 on the country singles chart, was a song he had originally written for Tommy Collins in 1954. Beyond the chart position and airplay the song garnered, it was significant for introducing Buck's trademark "Freight Train" sound, employing a hard drum backbeat in driving 2/4 time. He later explained that he "always loved music that had lots of beat. I always wanted to...

The artist's incendiary early shows in front of raucous surfer crowds at Balboa Beach's Rendezvous Ballroom established Dale as a regional sensation, and in the process helped to put surf music on the map. After he became an international star, Dale and his longstanding band the Del-Tones maintained the energy and innovation of their early performances, expanding their...

An avid surfer himself, Dick strove to recreate the feeling of riding the waves in his music.

Songs like "Let's Go Trippin,'" "Miserlou Twist" and "Surf Beat" helped define the surf genre and send untold aspiring guitarists in search of their own Stratocasters and Fender Showman amps.

The quartet's 1970 sophomore album is one of the legendary combo's most beloved releases, and a quintessential evocation of the Meters' peerless greatness. The album features their immortal smashes "Look-Ka Py Py" and "Chicken Strut,"...

From the first smack of Al Jackson's crisp-as-a-potato-chip snare attack, the groove never lets up on these 12 original tracks. Guitarists will want to pay special attention to Steve Cropper's aggressive, proto-fuzz/funk Telecastering (as surely, Jimi Hendrix, Ernie Isley and Billy Gibbons were all doing at the time). Add to that mix the cooking organ and high-voltage electric...

But just like that ultimate orgasmic blast during the finale of a great fireworks show, what a perfect way to go. A true rarity among 60's psych collectors, tracks 1 through 7 appeared on the original Maze release, recorded at various studio sessions from September 1967 to March 1968 at Leo Kulka's Golden State Recorders in San Francisco.
