Jackpot is honored to be releasing four mighty reissues from Booker T. & the MG’s’ ‘60s hot streak of soul classics in our biggest bundle yet! The four-piece set follows the sold-out limited edition reissue of The Meters’ first three albums and features charting and fan-favorite LPs: Soul Dressing (Mono), And Now!, Hip Hug-Her and Doin’ Our Thing.
AAA all analog process, cut from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray, save when you bundle all 4 Limited Editions and vibe out with arguably the most well-known, respected, and beloved instrumental band of all time.
Initially serving as the house band for Stax Records, organist Booker T. Jones, guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Lewie Steinberg (later replaced by Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn), and drummer Al Jackson Jr. were instrumental in creating the “Memphis Sound”. They recorded the basic tracks for well over a hundred records, backing some of the greatest artists of all time – including Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Rufus Thomas, and Albert King – all the while breaking barriers as one of the south’s first integrated acts.
But they became legendary powerhouses of their own making when they started recording for themselves. Throughout their history, they racked up Top 40 hits, had their songs covered by artists as diverse as The Ventures, Count Basie, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award, and continued being the band of choice in collaborations with legends such as Bob Dylan & Neil Young.
Iconic records Soul Dressing (Mono), And Now!, Hip Hug-Her, and Doin’ Our Thing will hit the shelves for the first time in decades, with Doin’ Our Thing receiving its first US vinyl reissue since its original 1968 release date! Now available in Jackpot-exclusive limited colors, each in editions of 500: Blue Sky swirl, Purple/Red swirl, Pink/White swirl, and Green/Yellow swirl. Standard colors are also available.
Save when you bundle all 4 Limited Editions before the October 6th release date. All pre-orders will ship to arrive around October 6th.
