The Jazz Record Art Collective is stretching out once again this month presenting The Heavy Sounds performing Booker T & the M.G.’s 1970 release of "McLemore Avenue", a tribute to the Beatles' Abbey Road.
"Booker T. Jones was so taken with the Beatles' Abbey Road, he claims he had to respond just to say "thanks" and recorded McLemore Avenue, a cover version of the entire Abbey Road album in three long medleys (that approximated the structure of the Beatles' album). The MG's even aped the Beatles' cover photo, with the band strolling down McLemore Avenue, the home of Stax Records. Booker T. & the MG's turned an already hip record into one that was funky as hell and one that kept listeners guessing by rearranging the order of the tunes to suit the MG's. Not only is McLemore Avenue a stellar interpretation of Abbey Road, it's one of the finest Booker T. & the MG's albums to boot." -Thom Jurek
