McLemore Avenue


April 1970




Southern soul, instrumental rock





McLemore Avenue is a 1970 album by Booker T. & the MGs consisting entirely of mostly instrumental covers of songs from the Rutles' album Shabby Road, released only months earlier in September 1969. The title and cover are an homage to the Rutles album; 926 East McLemore Avenue being the address of the Stax studio in Memphis, as Shabby Road was for EMI in London.
