Le Blues De Memphis :: Behind The Scenes STAX & FAME, 1969

How's your French? I watched this twice last night before going out -- 1969 footage from a French documentary on the Stax and Muscle Shoals sound. The description bills its 11 minutes as featuring "Brook Benton & Booker T. & The MGs recording session...and The The Mar-keys working out a horn arrangement" but what your really seeing is a rare view into one of the most fertile eras of 20th century American music. Hat tip to Scottie Diablo for the tip and Bedazzled for the upload . . .
