Stax is synonymous with some of the most iconic, transfixing, and instantly recognizable soul music ever recorded. The imprint's logo, the cooler-than-thou hand with the snapping fingers, aptly captured the grittiness, rhythmic nature, and groove-shaking capacity of the production, artists, and house band. Over its career, the legendary label placed more than 175 hit songs on Billboard's Hot 100 pop charts as well as a staggering 250 hits on the R&B charts. Here's a can't-miss chance to own the best of the best on a single analog LP.
Stax Number Ones includes all fifteen songs that hit #1 on the aforementioned charts. As you may expect, the album features many of the greatest names in music, all together on one stellar compilation, including: Booker T. & The MG's, Sam & Dave, Eddie Floyd, Otis Redding, Johnnie Taylor, Rufus Thomas, Jean Knight, Isaac Hayes, The Dramatics, The Staple Singers and Shirley Brown.
