Muze PNote Until Stax folded in 1975, the Memphis-based record label and Motown were the musical equivalents of the great Yankee and Brooklyn Dodger teams of the '40s and '50s. While Berry Gordy's recording empire characterized itself with a clean-cut image and a slick production style, Stax steeped its releases in a grittier sound that was the product of a more freewheeling recording approach. The 4-CD STAX STORY chronicles these differences over the span of 98 remastered tracks.
Muze PNote The early Stax roster featured greats like Otis Redding ("These Arms of Mine," "Respect"), the dynamic duo of Sam & Dave ("I Thank You," "Soul Man") and instrumental powerhouse Booker T. & The MGs ("Green Onions," "Hang 'Em High"). By the late '60s, arrangers and producers from rival Motown were hired, ushering in an era of artists that included the Dramatics ("In the Rain"), former studio hand Isaac Hayes ("Theme From Shaft"), and the Staple Singers ("Respect Yourself"). Throughout its early '70s run, this pioneering R&B label continued infusing pop music with the kind of gospel and blues nuances missing from its Northern cousin's output. Motown may have been "The Sound of Young America," but Stax Records was truly Soulsville U.S.A.
