More Info:

CD edition includes eight bonus tracks. As a founding member of Stax house band Booker T. & The M.G.'s, Steve Cropper was involved in some of the most important music of the 1960s as a player, songwriter, and producer. The following decade introduced him to a new group of fans as guitarist for The Blues Brothers, appearing on both their records and film. A two-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Cropper has been an integral thread in the cloth of American music, writing, playing and producing into the 21st century to this very day. In 1969, Cropper released his first solo album, producing and arranging it's eleven tracks himself. His backing band? While there is no actual record of who played on the album itself, Grammy winner Robert Gordon's liner notes point to his fellow M.G.'s, Buddy Miles, Jim Keltner, the Bar-Kay's James Alexander, and more as candidates. From original tracks to it's well-known covers (including The Beatles classic the release shares it's name with), it is a tour de force of pure Memphis rock and soul.
