The Stax/Volt Revue featured one of the greatest lineups of soul and R&B artists to ever grace the stage. This film captures the tour and includes stunning performances by Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Eddie Floyd, Arthur Conley, the Mar-Keys and Booker T. & the MGs.
The Stax-Volt record label in 1967 was in its raging prime. The movie theater-turned-recording studio in Memphis was turning out some amazing sounds that easily rivaled Motown for supremacy in R&B. This video captures five of the label’s hottest artists (and one outlier) recorded at an auditorium in Oslo, Norway, in front of a group of local hipsters who obviously came to party.
