The soul sounds of Stax

Stax Records was one of the greatest R&B labels of all time, home not only to legends like Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, and Booker T. and the MG's, but a number of other talented artists (like Johnnie Taylor and Little Milton) who helped define the Stax sound of the late 60s and early 70s. Click HERE for a sampler of Stax songs that we've added to Rhapsody in the past week.
