Well, I'm not ungrateful, I do the same as you're doing, and refer music to people I know, and if I do it to my friends, they frown and grunt, because they really can't be arsed finding the stuff!! Anyway, thanks for helping. Meanwhile, I'll carry on listening to 'Green Onions'. - Mates?

Haha, don't sweat mate.

However, you are missing out on a vast amount of unknown and rare material (If you love 60's R&B and Soul that is).

Believe me the stuff released by Motown and the likes of Atlantic records is just the tip of a massive iceberg.
There's some quality tunes out there still undiscovered.

Because of this thread I did a bit of digging around on the net about this song and discovered Booker T Jones recorded 'Green Onions' aged 16 and on it's release two years later it sold over a million copies.

Incredible. Some people have all the talent!

Right-track, I'm not sweating!! I just don't want you to get the wrong end of the stick, if you know what I mean.

I was working at a BBQ joint a couple of years back and this guy came in and said he was Booker T's Roommate in College. He started telling me all these stories. It was pretty cool.

**Bump**

My knowledge of Booker T & MG's is non existence but I have been given an album by Booker T Jones called Potato Hole. On one listen I must say that I was rather impressed.

Instrumental soulful funk with a Hammond organ. I am going to give this furhter plays.

Great band, love Cropper's guitar work, the entire band is killer. My fave BTMG's is them backing Redding at Monterey, they smoked with their hardcore R&B as the dazed hippies looked on, and backing Albert King on his Born Under A Bad Sign LP.
