Stax Records Showcase – Classic Stax #1

Stax Records Showcase

Classic Stax #1

Stax Records is iconic. Synonymous with Southern soul music – think Otis Redding, Booker T. & the MGs, & Johnnie Taylor. The list is a great one & remains as important today since its inception back in 1959.

Starting off the first of our Stax Showcases is Brian Hurst who takes you back to the early 70s for 15 glorious slices of soul. The Staple Singers plus music from The Dramatics? You get the picture. As we like to say – 60 minutes of the good stuff.

Your feedback is always welcome and we hope you enjoy another unique presentation from
