    O.k, I know that it's Booker T Jones, but what does the MG's stand for? I am sure someone on here knows the answer.:blush:

    It was meant to be after the car, but was "Memphis Group"

    I'm pretty sure it was "Memphis Guitars". At least that's what it says on my four CD boxed best of.

    I might owe you five quid if you'd idenitified the tune correctly. Soul Limbo goes:

    da da da da dadadadada da da da da dadadadada da dada da da

    da daaa daaa daa da da
