Let’s keep it simple today, shall we?  It’s the end of the week, and it’s been a long one, right?  Let’s keep it on the cool side.

In fact, let’s keep it on the VERY cool side for a soul-filled, “funky Friday.”  Let’s groove to some Booker T. & The MG’s, led by Booker T. Jones on the organ and the legendary Steve Cropper on guitar.

These guys are a part of many music-listening souls, whether they realize it or not, as the house band at Stax Records, playing along with the likes of Otis Redding, Albert King, and Sam & Dave.

These guys were as tight — and as cool — as they come.
