Booker T. & The MG's - Hip Hug-Her LP
Release Date: October 6th, 2023
Limited edition pink vinyl.
One of the treasures of listening to this album is hearing their signature sound moving through the culture of the 60s while holding onto what made them ... well ... them. Even as the album art veered towards a counter-culture sensibility, the music inside was not letting the listener mistake them for anyone else but themselves always Booker T. & The MGs.
1967's Hip Hug-Her is one of their most beloved records, with its toe tapping into the pop world. Spawning two signiﬁcant hits, their cover of the Young Rascals "Groovin" and the title track, which many recognize as the iconic opening and closing credit sequence music for the movie Barﬂy.
