Includes "Hippie From The Hills" & "Truck Driver's Heaven"!
As part of Staxs year-long, 60th anniversary celebration, this quirky collection of long-lost gems from the latter days of the Stax empire, Stax Country highlights the Memphis soul labels effort to branch out into country music.
Although the majority of the tunes on this album never made it to the radio waves, the tracks here stand as a unique time capsule of early '70s country. Includes new liner notes by country biographer and Tony-award winning playwright Colin Escott.
