Needed something to kick it into gear. Turn it up. Bring on the Summer!

Oh man; this is it. A huge stash of finger popping, foot moving hits from Stax records. It's just glorious. Just glorius.

Otis Redding: Respect; Sam and Dave: Soul Man; Carla Thomas: Gee Whiz; Booker T & the MGs: Green Onions; Jean Knight: Mr. Big Stuff.

All songs that make you smile when they come on the radio.

If your day has turned cloudy, reach for this one.

It's a good deal too: two discs with 50 tracks is $14.99 at Amazon for either the CD Stax 50th Anniversary Celebration (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KP62UM?ie=UTF8&tag=w3pgcoffeeroomss&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000KP62UM)http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=w3pgcoffeeroomss&l=as2&o=1&a=B000KP62UM or downloadable complete (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015PD4CU?ie=UTF8&tag=w3pgcoffeeroomss&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0015PD4CU) album.
