Stax Records

A very cool trip to Memphis this weekend led me along with friends Marideth Sisco and Jonathan Scheuer to Stax Records Museum.  Stax Museum is beautifully laid out, well lit and contains so much information about the early days of R&B. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Stax didn't limit itself to black musicians.
