Various - Stax '68: A Memphis Story

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of a pivotal year for Stax Records and for American history: 1968. This period immediately follows the untimely passing of Otis Redding; it’s the year that Stax parted ways with Atlantic Records, and it’s also when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. This five-disc CD box set compiles every single (A- and B- sides) released on Stax and its subsidiary labels in ’68 – over 120 iconic songs from era-defining artists, including Otis Redding, the Staple Singers, William Bell, Booker T. And The M.G.’s, Carla Thomas, Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas and more.
