The liner notes to the package are brief but informative (one learns that Booker T. did not play on "Boot-Leg," for instance, since he was away working on a music degree at the University of Indiana when the tracking was done and was replaced for the session by the one and only Isaac Hayes), and while this set isn't. that different from several other "best of the MGs" albums on the market, it hits all the right notes in all the right places, and that should be the tagline for this band: they hit all the right notes in all the right places

Booker T. & the MG's were the house band for Stax Records, but they released some albums under their name. They first recorded this in the mid-'60s and reworked it in 1968 for the James Coburn movie Duffy. When the band learned they would have to give up their publishing rights to the song, they killed the deal. It ended up getting placed in another 1968 film, Uptight, directed by Jules Dassin. They didn't want to name the song "Uptight" because of Stevie Wonder's 1965 hit "Uptight (Everything's Alright)," so they went with "Time Is Tight.

Even during the days when they were playing almost nightly as the Stax studio band behind many of the legends of R & B and "Rock 'n' Soul," Booker T. and the MGs never lost their distinctive sound. Booker T. is still touring with a band that includes son, Ted. As they say, check listings for when and where. But, if you can't catch Booker T. live, this excellent compilation provides a more than worthy set of musical memories. I live in Wisconsin and it wasn't easy to receive a signal from Australia back then. But the whole album is great. No singing, just great instrumentals.

In 1969 the R&B song in the charts was Time Is Tight by Booker T. Time Is Tight by Booker T. 46. ▼ Select Rank Below 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 #.
