1967 Mod Classic from the Soulsville, U.S.A. Instrumental Combo!
As the house band at Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee, Booker T. & the MG's may have been the single greatest factor in the lasting value of that label's soul music, not to mention Southern soul as a whole.
The fifth studio album from Booker T & the MG's, Hip Hug-Her was released on Stax Records in 1967. The title track was their most successful single since their debut "Green Onions". Their cover of the Young Rascals' song "Groovin'" was also a hit song.
