Eight albums, excluding "best-of" collections, were issued during the nine too-brief years that keyboardist Booker T. Jones, guitarist Steve Cropper, drummer Al Jackson, Jr., and bassists Lewie Steinberg or Donald "Duck" Dunn recorded as the MGs for Stax Records. Now, more than three decades after the quartet disbanded, comes a ninth album. The disc presents the group applying its signature Memphis touch to 25 pop and R&B hits of the 1960s. Three--Eddie Floyd's "On a Saturday Night" and Sam & Dave's "Soul Man" and "When Something Is Wrong with My Baby"--are instrumental reworkings of songs to which the band initially had supplied the backup. All provide additional evidence of why Booker T. & the MGs are widely regarded as having been the tightest, most consistently creative rhythm section in all of popular music.
