The Great Memphis Sound
The Mar-Keys
(1966)

What a sound.
What sweet, sweet silky sound.
Does it get any better than this?
Hardly.
The Mar-Keys were the house-band for Stax records – these are the guys that played backup to all the great music that came out in the late fifties and sixties. 126 more words

That time Donald "Duck" Dunn told me that Eric Clapton was the best all-around guitarist he ever worked with

By Steve Newton

Bass players don’t get much more special than Donald “Duck” Dunn. As a session musician for Stax Records, Dunn brought the bottom end on scores of legendary tracks, including gems like Otis Redding’s “Respect”, Sam & Dave’s “Hold On, I’m Comin'”, and Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign”. 180 more words

Eddie Harris

Come on Down!

Atlantic 1554
produced by Tom Dowd
1970

Rating:**** (Recommended)

Harris goes to Florida for some fresh-squeezed sounds, all the way to the warm climes of Miami but obviously inspired by the red-hot deep-fried soul food offerings of Memphis and Muscle Shoals. 170 more words
