Green Onions and Other Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
There have been few backing bands in the history of rock that were as great as Booker T. & the MG's. As the "Stax band" of the '60s, the quartet's most impressive contribution to popular music was backing some of soul music's greatest names -- Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, etc. But Booker T. & the MG's also issued their own all-instrumental recordings -- scoring quite a few sizable hits on their own.

There are a multitude of more extensive Booker T. & the MG's collections out on the market the single-disc The Very Best of Booker T. & the MG's, the box set Time Is Tight, etc., but for an affordable sampler of the fantastic Booker T. & the MG's, give Green Onions and Other Hits a try.
