Following up their smash debut album Green Onions
, 1965?s Soul Dressing
keeps the MG?s party going in fine fashion. 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 piano of Booker T. and rock salt-steady bass lines of original MG bassist Lewie Steinberg and you?ll have a dressing fit for any occasion. Hungry yet?
Want to mix up this dressing at home? First, you?ll need to pick up the original, done-to-perfection Stax Records analog master tapes. While stirring steadily, add a high-definition dose of the freshest vinyl available. Bake at 33 1/3 degrees until done to high glossy finish. Serve in the original, full color artwork and, PLEASE, no MSG, just BT&MG!!!
