Classic Stax box set

Just noticed this has been released today – the Classic Stax box set.

It isn’t anything more than it promises. But it definitely lives up to the title.

All the classics are here, Booker T, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Eddie Floyd, you know the score. All the tracks you associate with the label too. 60 tracks in total over three discs and selling for a budget £6.99. Can’t argue with that. Full track listing below.
