Album of the Day: Sam & Dave (10/26/67)

51iNZ2fdrJL._SL160_Southern soul team Sam & Dave were arguably the greatest all-male R&B/soul duo of all time. Samuel Moore and David Prater recorded a string of hits in the mid-60s on the Stax label, the hugely influential Memphis-based affiliate of Atlantic Records. With songwriting, production and leadership from Isaac Hayes and David Porter, Sam & Dave topped the R&B and pop charts with “Soul Man” (1966), “Hold On! I’m Coming” (1967) and “I Thank You” (1968). “Soul Man” became the (sort of) title track to the duo’s October 26, 1967 album, Soul Men, which included several great non-hit songs penned by Hayes and the superb backing by Booker T. & The MG’s, the renowned house band at Stax.

Soul Men is available as download tracks from iTunes click here) and as a CD from Amazon (click here).
