CD Reviews

Not a bad track here!
Dick K | Centreville, VA United States | 03/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There may not be any Top40 hits on this CD but there isn't a track here that isn't worth repeated listening. If you've like them before then forget reading any further, just buy it and enjoy!This CDs showcases an older, more sophisticated Booker T. & the MGs -- a polished, relaxed and confident sound. The track mix is excellent from the quiet jazzy sound of "Let's Wait Awhile" to the Hammond-organ-driven funk of "Mo' Greens" and the title track. There's even a bit of musical humor here--if you're old enough to catch the reference to Clyde the camel in "Camel Ride".In short, this is a terrific set of music and well deserves a spot in your collection."
The MG's return! A mixed set.

"Released in 1994, "That's the Way It Should Be" marked the MG's first record together since 1977's very disappointing (and somewhat disco-ish) "Universal Language." "That's the Way" marked the MG's return to the formula that made albums like "Soul Limbo" and "Hip Hug-Her" so great. Unfortunately, the songs here (both covers and originals) don't quite measure up to the standard of the songs on those great early-period albums (although "Sarasota Sunset" comes very close). Another problem is the sonic studio sheen that drains the energy from the songs. I saw the MG's playing these tunes live in 1994 and they sounded much more forceful--a live set of these tunes would have been much better."
This is the way it should be (done)

"This is great. Knowing these guys since the days of Otis Redding this recording makes sure that they still got that touch that made the success of Stax. Go get it!!!!!"
