Memphis’ legendary Stax Records have helped launch the careers of many prominent African American artists since their inception in 1959 and they continue to play an integral part in showcasing the immense musical talents of timeless artists such as Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T & the MG’s, Wilson Pickett, and Staples Singers, just to name a few. They have been bringin’ the funk since 1959 and there’s no stopping now!
While we encourage you to celebrate these artists and their music year-round, in honor of Black History Month this February Grimy Goods has teamed up with Stax Records to offer you the chance to win one of two superb music and clothing swag bundles. One bundle includes an exclusive Stax Records t-shirt and a 9-disc box set, The Complete Stax/Volt Soul Singles, Vol. 2: 1968-1971 (out now).
