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!
