Stax: Thanks for the Memories
Episode date - November 13, 2015
This, quite definitively, represents our last show in the series dedicated to Stax Records.
The downfall was so devastatingly complete that by the time the smoke cleared, there was nothing left to do but pick up the ashes and move on. A once proud, influential and world renowned institution died an ignominious death, but the music survives.
Here are some of the best bits from their last days;
1) Who Made the Man – The Staple Singers
2) I Got a Reason to Smile – Eddie Floyd
3) It Ain’t No Fun – Shirley Brown
4) If You Talk – Little Milton
5) You’re Astounding – Barbara and Joe
6) Try Me Tonight – Johnnie Taylor
7) I’m Doing Fine – Albert King
8) Back Road into Town – The Staple Singers
9) Holy Ghost – The Bar-Kays
