Contains the finest tracks from Booker T and the MGs and The Mar-Keys.

Featured over these two CDs is the first flowering of the 'Stax' sound, a sound that would develop throughout the 60s to become one of the most predominant sounds of American R&B and soul around the world.

Included are three complete albums, two from The Mar-Keys and one from Booker T & The MGs plus bonus singles. These were the first acts to break on Stax Records with hits like, "Last Night" and "Green Onions". Here then are three of the earliest albums released out of Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton's legendary label and the genesis of one of the most important house bands in recording history.
