BGP’s critically acclaimed jazz and funk classics series reaches its third instalment with a look at one of our favourite labels - Stax. Our aim is to bring you the super-rare and usually unreissued albums on CD with notes and incredible mastering for fantastic sound. The five albums in the third series are all obscurities from within the mighty label’s catalogue, and are all sought after by collectors. Although Mississippi-born Ernie Hines made his first recordings in Chicago for the USA label, it was when he returned south that he was signed to Stax’s We Produce label by Al Bell. He recorded this one album for the We Produce label under the supervision of Tom Nixon, who was then producing Rufus Thomas’ big dance hits.
