CDBooker T. and the MGs, The Definitive Soul Collection (Atlantic/WEA, two CDs). This 2006 collection of thirty tracks by the R-&-B counterpart of Count Basie's All-American Rhythm Section contains virtually all of the group's A-side single releases, including "Green Onions" and "Hip Hug-Her," plus a nicely chosen sprinkling of other cuts. Go here for Stax-style instrumental soul at its funkiest (TT).
