The third and final chapter of the definitive collection of the great Memphis soul label Stax focuses on the early-mid 1970s; a time when the label was enjoying remarkable chart successes, yet was on the verge of its dramatic denouement. Vol. 3 contains all soul singles issued by Stax/Volt during those years and includes some of the biggest and best-loved hits of the day as well as a number of little-known gems by both major and less familiar artists.
This 2015 reissue comes in sleek, new packaging, presented in a rigid lift-off 5.5-inch x 5.5-inch box. The 10-disc set features 213 tracks and a full-color booklet with a 47,000-word essay by Stax historian Rob Bowman.
