Overview

Soul Party

The quintessential instrumental R&B band of the late '60s, Booker T. & the MG's defined a particular breed of groove-heavy but still breezily lighthearted music. Booker T. Jones' fiery organ and Donald "Duck" Dunn's deep basslines gelled into a sound as bright as a spring day and as humidly funky as a Southern swamp. Soul Party is an odd stopgap album composed of seven live tracks and five studio cuts, including versions of the band's biggest hits. The live material (broken up by uproarious cheers from what sounds like a Super Bowl-sized audience) focuses on well-known tracks like "Green Onions" and "Hip Hug-Her," and the studio material includes sound-alike "Mo' Onions," the appropriately titled "Groovin'," and the jaunty "One Mint Julep." Somewhere between a best-of collection and middling live album, Soul Party is a serviceable collection, if a somewhat disjointed one.
