"Le Blues De Memphis"

“Le Blues de Memphis” is an incredibly cool 11-minute video tour of two iconic music studios. Made for French television forty-some years ago, it starts off at a Brook Benton session in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and then (after a quick stop at Elvis Presley’s Graceland) takes us behind the scenes at Stax Records—where Booker T. and the MGs are recording “Time Is Tight” and a slicker-than-silk, saxophone-playing Isaac Hayes is putting the studio’s horn section through its paces. Blues or no blues, this is joyous, eye-opening stuff.

  1. Brook Benton, Booker T., Steve Cropper, Isaac Hayes... ¡Cuánto talento junto! Vídeos como éste deberían ser de visión obligada en todas las escuelas.
