On 1969's The Booker T. Set, the famous Memphis group placed its distinctive stamp on 11 pop and r&b hits of the period, including Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson," which became a pop and r&b hit for the instrumental foursome. Booker T. Jones's mellow-toned organ swells, Steve Cropper's razor-sharp lead and rhythm guitar parts, Duck Dunn's loping bass lines, and Al Jackson, Jr.'s rock-solid drum grooves transform each song into a nicely seasoned slice of Southern soul. The empathy that these four musicians had for each other as they subtly interlocked their parts was uncanny–and remains unsurpassed.
