BOOKER T. JONES

Can’t Buy Me Love

(A Hard Day’s Night, 1964)

As founder member of the Stax house-band Booker T & the MGs, Booker T. Jones is another truly legendary name to be found on The Art Of McCartney. The MGs were the sound behind Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Sam & Dave, on a host of classic singles, as well as contributing their own, timeless, Green Onions. In 1973 Booker T collaborated with Bob Dylan on his Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid soundtrack; and, twenty years on, he was back on the road again with the MGs, this time as Neil Young’s backing band.
