First time listener, what am I supposed to testify about? I guess the fifth isn't an option

Hi Fred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:05am Funky16Corners:

It's 'testify' like get up on the altar and testify!

Any true testimonial, Fred. It only takes five seconds.

Amen.

Larry, did you ever make that with the boys? Did they dig it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:25am doctorjazz:

Uh oh, hearing the signal come and g go , just for a second there ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:25am Funky16Corners:

@Doc - The story was that Barry Gibb wrote it with Otis in mind but since he died he never got to do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:26am Funky16Corners:

@Uncle Michael - Not yet. I want to, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:33am doctorjazz:

Just unbelievable the crap going on now... Crazies all coming out.
Never heard this version of "Miss Your Water" .. It's such a great song if you can sing, it's hard to miss with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:33am Funky16Corners:

I think that Otis Clay's version is the best, even surpassing the William Bell original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:36am doctorjazz:

It s great indeed , as is the other Otis'classic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:37am Funky16Corners:

Nothing fancy ,but always just right !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 10:53am Funky16Corners:

Yeah, such a big part of these records!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 11:07am Cal Zone!:

The Rhythm section on Hold On is absolutely perfect. There is no machine that can recreate that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:09am Funky16Corners:

I wish Stax would put out a box set of instrumental tracks of all the great hits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 11:11am Cal Zone!:

Michael Shelley was talking about a new Stax box yesterday
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:11am Funky16Corners:

The 1968 one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:12am doctorjazz:

Have the older Stax boxes, great stuff !
  Sun. 10/28/18 11:12am Dean:

Heh, I just emailed Michael Shelley, because the context of his discussion was a record by Dino & Doc. He queried whether or not the group was predominantly Black or white. Very little written about the one-single duo, but via Discogs I traced one of the songwriters to The Fabulous Dinos, a Black group.

Yes, the 1968 box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 11:13am Cal Zone!:

I think so....its a newer collection and it includes everything Stax including all of the weird sub-label stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:13am doctorjazz:

Of course, if you have all these 45's you just buy your own box.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 11:16am Cal Zone!:

The original Stax Box is fantastic. A treasure trove!
Avatar Sun. 10/28/18 11:16am Jeff Ash:

All good, Larry. I also learned of "Wrap It Up" from the Fabulous Thunderbirds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:16am Funky16Corners:

Just have to read those labels!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:31am doctorjazz:

That's the Gimme Some Lovin' bass riff, put to good use here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:31am Funky16Corners:

This is where it originated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:31am doctorjazz:

Or was this first?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:32am doctorjazz:

Ah, beat me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:32am Funky16Corners:

Stevie had sticky fingers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:35am doctorjazz:

Great taste in what to, ah, "borrow".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 11:37am Funky16Corners:
