IN THE VAULT 06/29/2015

Best known for "Green Onions," released some five decades ago, Booker T. Jones has been consistently releasing music, with his latest release, Sound The Alarm, on Stax, the label that released Green Onions back in 1962.

Booker T. has come home.

Jones recorded Potato Hole in 2009 with Patterson Hood producing and Hood's band, The Drive By Truckers, backing.

And it is Potato Hole that is languishing in the Vault this week.

A couple of years ago, Stephen T. McCarthy and I went to see Booker T on my birthday-which technically means Booker T. played my birthday party-well, he signed my copy of "Potato Hole," anyway.
