    This might be my favorite Stax release from Classics to date. I’m gonna end up a-bing to the others every time I listen.

    There’s an energy to it that only exists in Sam & Dave and James Brown records. It just slaps!!!!

    I'm thrilled with this one, Storf - been haunting Amazon for signs of a reissue for the last few years, even though I have the CD in the Atlantic/Stax Soul album box set from a while back.

    Yeah man, a lot of these picks start as me loving the album and not being able to find a copy in a store; I haven't even seen an OG copy of Knock on Wood in a record store since I've been amassing Stax Records

    Ya’all are gonna think I’m crazy but the inside of my Album carries a lightly pleasant pine tree scent. This album is completely a top shelf choice. Home Run @Storf. I also loved your notes.

    This reminds me of when tourists come into my work in the summer and ask if our money really smells like maple if you scratch it hard enough

    Late to the party, and I may be the only one dancing in the room to this right now but overly enjoying it nonetheless. On my second spin since yesterday. Definitely a phenomenal pick.

    Stax fatigue?!
    Nonsense...
    not when they’re like this.
    Amazing choice @Storf (y)

    (I apologize for the tag buddy, I know you get too many of them throughout the day. Just wanted to tag ya in something that actually might make you happy/smile. Have a great day and an even better weekend!!!)
