Respect Yourself: The History of Stax Records

It is fair to say that Stax Records produced a harder edge, bluesier sound that Motown which proved extremely popular both at The Twisted Wheel and The Blue Note in Manchester in the sixties. The Stax tour in the sixties including Otis Redding, Sam and Dave and Booker T was probably the highlight of Mod Culture at that time and no respectable mod would every admit they weren’t there..

Today, ageing mods will have the Stax Museum firmly at the top of their bucket lists.
