If you happen to be on holiday in Memphis with the wife and kids and you can convince them to take a tour of the Stax Museum then we heartily congratulate you because we know we’d struggle to do the same with our lot. If however you are not planning on heading to the Deep South this year what with the financial crisis and all that then here at VoEA we have a treat that could save you thousands and still give you a taste of modern musical history.
Welcome to the VoEA virtual tour of the Stax Museum. Simply flick through the photos below to see the organ Booker T tinkled on during the recoding of Green Onions, Isaac Hayes very own car replete with white fur-lined floor and gold-plated trim, Bobby Bland’s hand-made stage shirt and of course, the accessory no kitchen is complete without – the Stax Records oven glove. Too hot to handle?
