  •  Ed, this diary (7+ / 0-)

    sent me back to my old collection of 45s, which haven't been played for years.  I never did find what I was looking for, but I had the usual "Where the hell did that come from?" experience that I have every time I go back to that collection.  (Ray Stevens?  Gary Puckett & the Union Gap?  Tommy Roe?  Who knew?)

    However, it is a surprise to me that Booker T. & the MGs was not all black.  It's so gratifying to know that, at that time and in that place, there was a money-making enterprise where white & black cooperated and shared in the success.
