Various Artists - Boy Meets Girl (2xLP Vinyl)

Tax included.

50th anniversary reissue of this long out of print Stax compilation featuring some of the label's biggest duets. Exclusively released on Record Store Day 2019.


This is not a compilation, but originally a 1969 double LP (issued in a shorter one disc version in Britain); It is interesting in many levels: because it is Stax Soul, quality guaranteed, because it features lesser known but excellent artists (William Bell, Eddie Floyd, Johnnie Taylor, Carla Thomas and three members of the Staples family), because Soul duets are generally a real treat, because of all the great producers involved (Al Bell, Homer Banks, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. Jones, Don Davis, Steve Cropper, Marvell Thomas), because it was recorded in legendary studios (Ardent, Fame, United Sound ...). So it is a compact way to discover the sound of Stax, or to enlarge your knowledge of this sound beyond Otis Redding. And most of all, it is a wonderful slice of happiness and soulfulness to enjoy. Grab it if you can !
