Hey everybody, it's time for another All MemphisMusic.com Specialty Show and this week, it's a classic, because we're going to air a one-hour special featuring the music of legendary guitarist and Rock N' Roll Hall of Famer, Steve Cropper this Friday, December 18 at 10:00 PM Central Time; and repeating the following morning, December 19, at 10:00 AM Central Time. During the interview, Steve will discuss many of his 20 all-time personal favorite songs he participated in as a songwriter, musician, or producer, with recollections about tracks and how they came about, as well as other anecdotes about the recordings.
Steve Cropper is the iconic guitarist and a founding member of Booker T. & the MGs, whose Memphis sound not only brought the group international acclaim on its own, but were also considered to be the best backing group in the history of soul music, working with many of the Stax Records stable of soul and blues artists, including Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Albert King, William Bell, Eddie Floyd and Rufus Thomas. As a songwriter, Steve Cropper collaborated with a number of artists such as Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett on an array of songs that have become classics. He also became a well-respected producer and continues to work today with many contemporary performers in the blues, rock, soul, and roots genres of music.
