Editorial Reviews

Booker is known as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, record producer, and arranger, and is best known for fronting Booker T and the MGs. This is his first solo album in decades. He teamed with southern rockers Drive-By Truckers to produce an album that is raw and edgy, fun and innovative. And just to seal the deal, long-time Booker associate Neil Young dropped by to play blistering lead guitar on nine of the ten tracks. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Rickie Lee Jones, Foo Fighters) and Booker T.

I agree with Yossarian. A very nice CD (all instrumental) for your car or your home when you need to relax or are in the mood to relax.

The backing band is essentially the Drive-By Truckers (not the first time they've been the band for another artist) with Neil Young as the lead guitarist.

Notable foot tapping tracks: Pound It Out, Potato Hole and Native New Yorker.

Pleasing notable soulful tracks: Hey Ya, Nan, Warped Sister, Reunion Time.

Booker weaves in and out of the mix with the guitars for an overall very pleasing mix. While you may miss Donald Dunn and Steve Cropper - this is an effort worth hearing. Recommended. If you can afford it in these times - I suspect it will improve your mood.

I ordered this when I first saw it was coming out because I love the old records with the MGs. Then I heard that Neil Young plays a bunch on it & I heard it was pretty good...

That's too slight a review,This thing Kicks it and right from the start on "Pound It Out" it's some Hard Rocking Joy,it is GREAT. I will be playing this thing Daily for some time to Come.

Do you ever wake up completely worn down by the day to day madness, only to realize before lifting your head that you have a full day of hard work ahead of you? You can go two ways: you can moan your way through, or you can rock out, snarl at the world, and own it.

If you choose the intense, passionate response, you may be lucky enough to encounter moments of unexpected beauty and calmness amidst the grinding gears of your experience. And if you can begin to understand how those moments fall into the next, you can ride that wave, blending happiness and purity into the grease and grit.

That's how I hear Potato Hole.

Considering this isn't a Booker T. & The M.G.s of yesterday, I don't understand why reviewers are trying to stuff this record into their catalog. It's experimental and searching. I love the collaboration with the Drive By Truckers, expecially on the cover of Space City. The Hey Ya tune is pretty sweet, and I love that Neil Young is sitting in on guitar. Great effor by a great musician. Why try and capture Green Onions anyway? Let's move on to 2009 and enjoy this record for what it provides the listener. Great rockin' tunes. Thank you Mr. Jones, Mr. Young, and the Drive By Truckers! This has turned out to be a great year for music!

Potato Hole is a great instrumental album. Booker T's organ playing feels funky and familiar and all the boys from the Drive By Truckers create a whale of a good time in support. Neil Young plays killer guitar as well, but it's the Truckers rhythm section of Brad Morgan and Shonna Tucker that makes my booty shake and my speakers skate around the room.

Like all baby boomers, I know and love Green Onions. I also saw Booker T back Neil Young (my favorite musician of all time) back in the 90s in Finsbury Park in London, when he was a perfect suppport.

However that was then and this is now, so I only really bought this CD because it features Young on guitar and got decent reviews.

Within seconds of pushing the CD into my car's player (it was a sunny day and the top was down, so the omens were favorable) I was hooked.

Put briefly this is the coolest recording made this year. I suspect only Booker T can make a Hammond organ sound cool, sexy, funky and just the happeningest sound ever.

And the contribution from Neil Young lives up to the standard of Booker T and the rest of the musicians, which is really saying something.

I've told all my friends to buy this CD. I suggest you do too.

I've been telling everyone i know about how good this recording is since i first purchased it. i really knew nothing about it, save for the sticker blurb on the front cover and was more than pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the recording. now i can say i was certainly not alone as it won the grammy for "Best Pop Instrumental Album". this is the only time in recent memory that i can say i was rooting for any album to win a grammy, and i'm very relieved that it did. kudos to booker t, drive by truckers and neil young for making a true work of art.

The Drive-By Truckers seem to bring the best out of Booker T and Neil Young. If you love some funky Hammond B3 organ, nobody plays it better than Booker T. The Truckers do a solid job of backing him with tasteful rock but never try to steal the show. Neil Young doesn't steal it either but he plays better here than on any of his own recent albums. I like this so much I've bought a few copies and given them to friends.
