Description

“Green Onions” is ranked No.183 on Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest songs of all time. It is used extensively on TV and features in American Graffiti, Dragon, Get Shorty, The Sopronos and even on the Quadrophenia soundtrack!
BOOKER T. & THE M.G.’s will be forever synonymous with the sound of Memphis Soul, as defined by Stax Records for whom they were the house band. In 1962 they made it to No.1 in the R&B Charts and peaked at No.3 in Billboards Hot 100 with “Green Onions”. The classic 12-bar blues anthem features Steve Cropper on a Fender Telecaster and Booker T Jones’ rippling Hammond M3 organ. Original issue! The ultimate & original Funk/R&B/Soul instrumental!
