Stax Funx

...came across this amazing unreleased compilation of stax hits, most we've never heard of before. Perhaps one of the best Stax comps. Filled with heavy, heavy drumming, blasting horns, and bluesy psychedelic bass.

Thanks this is great!
I was wondering, do you have the track listing? Because I checked on internet and the track listing I've found doesn't seem to match with the tracks?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I really love your blog!

Maryse said...

Nevermind, I figured it out by the name of your mp3.
For an obscure reason the track listing from Amazon wasn't the same...
Anyway, thanks again for the groovy stuff!
Much much appreciated!:)
