    As the title indicates, STAX DOES THE BEATLES compiles vintage Stax Records covers of classic Beatles tunes. As standard practice, Stax artists frequently recorded Beatles songs in the 1960s and early '70s--Booker T. & the MGs' 1970 MCLEMORE AVENUE, is a whole LP's worth of completely rearranged material from ABBEY ROAD--and many of the finest examples are included here, from Carla Thomas's torchy take on "Yesterday" to Otis Redding's legendary funk workout on "Day Tripper" to Isaac Hayes's 12-minute transformation of George Harrison's "Something" into a soul-jazz masterpiece.
