"Boot-Leg" finds Booker T. & The MG's core group (Booker, Duck Dunn, Al Jackson, and Steve Cropper) joining forces with the Mar-Keys horn section. The Mar-Keys were a session band for the Stax label from Memphis, Tennessee in the 1960s. As the first house band for the label, their backing music formed the foundation for the early 1960s Stax sound. Featuring Charles "Packy" Axton on tenor sax and Don Nix on saxophone, this track is often overlooked in the Booker T. anthology, and it's a shame--because it's a ton of fun. What else can you say?

Do I love this blog? Yes. Do I still miss Dusty Nuggets internet radio? YES. What can we do to get you back online? Life just isn't the same without it.


You are too kind. Unfortunately, until the laws against internet broadcasters are eased up, this blog will have to suffice. The problem is that many of the copyrights/publishing info for these tunes are unknown, and that creates a problem (at least with Live365.)
Where are you from, Rich?
