Album of the Day
Along with the more refined sounds of Motown, Memphis-based Stax Records was among the great fountainheads of R&B in the 1960s. The soul duo of Sam Moore and Dave Prater recorded a cavalcade of memorable hits for the label beginning in 1965, and STAX CLASSICS: SAM & DAVE touches on many of their greatest recordings. The 12 tracks include “Hold On! I’m A Comin’” and “You Don’t Know Like I Know,” as well as the dynamic duo’s signature anthem, “Soul Man,” which reached #1 on the R&B chart and #2 on the pop chart in 1967. Produced in celebration of the legendary label's 60th anniversary, the new STAX CLASSICS: SAM & DAVE delivers a knockout punch from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.
