Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story

I was lucky enough to catch the documentary Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story on PBS the other night. It was kismet.  I’ve always been a fan of Stax Records and their story is a bitter but sweet one.  Although they were a small label, they still managed to sign and record many of the greatest Soul artists of all time: Eddie Floyd, Otis Redding, Issac Hayes, Sam & Dave, William Bell, Carla Thomas, Booker T. & The M.G.’s and the list goes on. I must go to the Stax Museum in Memphis, TN someday.

The B-side of Things Get Better/Good Love, Bad Love by Eddie Floyd is one of my most cherish Stax 45s.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
