Listening to the Stax 50 -- R E S P E C T !

The sky was a dreary this morning. 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 or downloadable complete album. It's also available as downloadable MP3 singles, but the album is the deal.  The singles at $.99 each or the entire 50 track downloadable or CD for $14.99.  Take the album and dance.
