    Best Of The Stax Sessions

    Here's another project I started working on around December of last year but didn't have time to complete. I've yet to create a CD face or what the inside of the insert would look like, but I thought I'd at least share what I have so far. It's a "Best of" compilation featuring what I believe are some of the best recordings from the Stax sessions. I hope you enjoy the look of the album!

    The track listing is:

    July, 1973 - Session 1

    1. If You Don't Come Back
    2. Three Corn Patches
    3. Take Good Care Of Her
    4. Find Out What's Happening
    5. I've Got A Thing About You Baby
    6. Just A Little Bit
    7. For Ol' Times Sake
    8. Girl Of Mine
    9. Sweet Angeline
    10. It's Diff'rent Now (Rehearsal)

    December, 1973 - Session 2

    11. I've Got A Feeling In My Body
    12. You Asked Me To
    13. It's Midnight
    14. If You Talk In Your Sleep
    15. Help Me
    16. My Boy
    17. Loving Arms
    18. Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues
    19. Talk About The Good Times
    20. Promised Land (Take 6, Unedited Master)

    There are two different designs. The one attached here is Version 1...

    Really great job but...

    ... some of those songs gotta go if it's going to be the BEST of Stax. I think Stax sessions created some of his best 70s work but we need to filter them down to one CD. My suggestion from your list as follows would make the final cut:

    1. If You Don't Come Back
    2. Find Out What's Happening
    3. I've Got A Thing About You Baby
    4. For Ol' Times Sake
    5. I've Got A Feeling In My Body
    6. You Asked Me To
    7. It's Midnight
    8. If You Talk In Your Sleep
    9. My Boy
    10. Loving Arms
    11. Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues
    12. Talk About The Good Times
    13. Promised Land (Take 6, Unedited Master)

    Now that IS a classic album!
