I’m working on a post remembering Donald “Duck” Dunn, legendary Stax bassist who passed away on Sunday. Dunn played for years with Booker T & The MGs; they were the house band at Stax in Memphis. In looking for videos, I found this great one of Booker T playing at NPR. The Hammond B3 sounds glorious:
Excellent audio engineering. And he was 17 when he recorded “Green Onions”! I was just trying to make out all the time at 17. And play some music, but at that time, making out edged music out of the way.
