Stax ’68 : A Memphis Story

Marquée par sa rupture avec Atlantic et l’assassinat de Martin Luther King, 1968 était une année charnière pour Stax Records.

50 ans plus tard, le coffret Stax ’68 : A Memphis Story réunit tous les singles (faces A et faces B) publiés au cours de l’année 1968 par Stax dans un coffret 5-CDs incluant 120 titres d’Otis Redding, The Staple Singers, William Bell, Booker T. and the M.G.s, Carla Thomas, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Isaac Hayes, Linda Lindell, Rufus Thomas et bien d’autres…

Cette anthologie contient également un livret de 56 pages illustré de photos rares extraites des archives de Stax et rédigé par l’historien de Memphis Andria Lisle, le spécialiste de Stax Records Robert Gordon et le producteur Steve Greenberg.
