(Apr 9, 2013): The Mar-Keys – Last Night

From the 1961 single, Last Night / Night Before.  This is the first single off the first album recorded by Stax (although it was still operating as Estelle Axton’s Satellite label).  The Mar-Keys (Steve Cropper (guitar), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), Terry Johnson (drums), Jerry Lee “Smoochie” Smith (piano), Don Nix (sax), Charles Axton (sax), and Wayne Jackson (drums)) were also the first house band at Stax.  The single was the song that held the band’s first album together.
