Booker T. & The MG's - And Now! LP


Label: Jackpot

Release Date: October 6th, 2023

Limited edition orange vinyl.

Initially serving as the house band for Stax Records, organist Booker T. Jones, guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Lewie Steinberg (later replaced by bass monster Donald 'Duck' Dunn), and drummer Al Jackson Jr. were instrumental increating the "Memphis Sound.' They recorded the basic tracks for well over a hundred records, including backing some of the greatest artists of all time: Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Rufus Thomas, and Albert King, all the while breaking barriers as one of the South's first integrated acts.

1966's And Now is the first to feature long-term bassist Duck Dunn, who helps create a nightclub feel that alternates between some of their most aggressive recordings and most sultry. No stranger to being in the U.S. and U.K. music charts (in both the Hot 100 & R&B categories), the jazzy first single offthe record, "My Sweet Potato," landed them yet another top 40 placement.
