Stax Records in Memphis and Motown in Detroit made up over 70% of the soul music recordings during the 60’s and 70’s, the old Stax building is now the Soul Museum.
This is the organ that Booker T & the MGs recorded ‘Green Onions’ on.
Here’s a pretty great live version.
I got kinda wrapped up around this point and kinda forgot to keep taking pictures so not much more.
This old recording console at Stax allows you to twist and slide, after Stax when I went to meet Jody at Ardent records I had this conversation with him:
“Is the console from the cover photo of Sister Lovers (the third Big Star album) still here?”
“Naw, it’s in the Stax museum, I think you can touch it there though.”
“I just did!”
“All roads lead to Big Star.”
