CD Reviews

A good "greatest hits" collection from their later years
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD compiles the best of the MG's output from the period after Stax and Atlantic ended their distribution agreement--basically 1966-1970. The MG's during this period played music that was more refined and little more "jazzy" than their earlier sides. The reviewer above is very wrong--this CD does have "Melting Pot" and "Time is Tight" and few of those other songs. If you've already got a collection of MG's material that covers the early (1962-1966) years, this CD is a good place to get a taste of their later sounds. If you're just starting your MG's collection, start with the "Very Best of" collection on Rhino. It covers both the early and late periods and has good liner notes and photos."
Good, but definately not Booker's best
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you are looking to buy some Booker T. and the M.G.'s. which if you haven't, you should, this is not the place to start. This poor compliation does not even include Melting Pot, nor Soul Limbo, Hip Hug-Her, Chinese Checkers (not a smash but a classic anyhow) or even Green Onions or Time is Tight for God's sake! Their signature songs! If you are really interested in the band, the greatest instrumental group of the sixties, then you should look into buying Rhino's thoughtfully compiled Time is Tight boxed set, or their albums Green Onions, Hip Hug-Her and Melting Pot, the best three they have to offer. The Rhino Best of.... is also far superior to this. My guess is that the label compiled what songs they could get for a cheap price that had recognizable names. That is the only excuse for such an incomplete collection. Definately not poor quality music, but really there's no reason for this album to exist."

"I want to buy the CD - The best of Booker T & MG4s (stax)where I can here the number "Time is tight". I want you can mail me, and give me rest of the information for the sales."
