Stax Of Funk: The Funky Truth (Bgp)
Freestyle / Nu Jazz / Funk / Afro
Memphis never really recovered from losing Stax. If you want to make music in the southern states of America these days you go to Atlanta. But maybe it wasn't all bad, there's a fair chance that Rick Dees' awful Disco Duck would have ended up on the legendary label - it is after all a Rufus Thomas groove badly executed. But the hangover continues and no major independent operation now runs from the city that created so much of America's popular music history.
