Booker T. & The MGs
Concord Music Group will release Booker T. & the MGs' Green Onions as part of its Stax Remasters series. Enhanced by 24-bit remastering by Joe Tarantino, two live bonus tracks and newly written liner notes by Grammy Award-winning Stax historian Rob Bowman, the reissue not only spotlights one of the most entertaining and influential soul and R&B recordings of the 1960s, but also reaffirms the album's enduring nature a half-century after its original release.

ABOUT BOOKER T. & THE MGS
Although the Sixties were a time of upheaval and change, one thing that remained constant was the laid-back, tightly locking Memphis sound of Booker T. & the MGs. They were not only the instrumental group of the decade, but they were its rhythm section, as if their firm timekeeping was the pulse that kept its turbulence in check.
