Le Blues De Memphis

Spike Priggen, who posted this to his wonderful Bedazzled blog nearly a month ago, apparently grew up in the same neighborhood I went to school in when I lived in New Haven, Connecticut in the early '70's, though I think he might be a bit younger than me. Anyway, what a find we have here: a Brook Benton session in Muscle Shoals, Booker T. & The MG's working out "Time is Tight" in the studio, and, tastiest of all, Isaac Hayes blowing baritone, running an expanded version of the Memphis Horns through a horn arrangement on The Emotions' hit "So I Can Love You." This is unbelievably sweet.
