Booker T. & The MGs - Voice Your Choice

Booker T. & The MGs began as session players with Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee. They consisted of Booker T. Jones on keyboards, Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald "Duck" Dunn on bass and Al Jackson, Jr. on drums. In case you were wondering what MG stands for, it's Memphis Group.

Between 1962 and 1971 they appeared 18 times on the Billboard charts; and they had three Top Ten singles plus three Gold Records.

And we have two of their Gold records for your votes this week on Voice Your Choice: Time Is Tight and Soul Limbo. Which is your preference? Come to the Voice Your Choice page to cast your vote. We'll play the winning song in Hour 3 of next week's Instrumental Gems - Wordless Wonders Special on Treasure Island Oldies.
