Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Ah, 926 East McLemore Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee, site of one of the wittiest band shots ever. This made my day; thanks for posting.
Love this album. I think there's a George Benson take on Abbey Road with the same idea for a cover, but this is a much better record. Available on CD too (as is their soundtrack for Jules Dassin's Uptight, which I really need to see).
I went to McLemore Avenue on my trip to Memphis and to this location. It was just before the Stax Studio reopened as a Museum.
I visited the Stax-Volt museum in July of 2004. Worth going to along with Sun Records if you're in Memphis.
On day I will go back to Memphis, there were so many things I missed and seeing this museum is one of them. The museums in Memphis were really good. I did go to a talk at The Barbican when the 'It Came From Memphis' season was on around 2005 and heard the Head of the Museum who worked at Stax give a little talk, William Bell was also there. A very cool season for us Londoners.
