Today we pay tribute to the instrumental R & B/funk band that helped to shape the Southern soul and Memphis soul sound. Happy Birthday, Booker T. Jones!

I was cleaning out some files and found this myteriously zipped file with absolutely no title. I’m certainly glad I did!

Happy Birthday, Neil. He’s 74 years young today.
Take your shoes off. Set a spell. Listen to some great music.
