Stax Revue Live At The 5/4 Ballroom: 7th & 8th August 1965To develop more of a profile on the West Coast, a show was arranged at the 5/4 (pronounced five four) Ballroom, the legendary dance hall in the Watts area of L.A. which had hosted every major blues, R&B and soul act since the fifties. The D.J. for the night and part organiser was the Magnificent Montague, whose catch phrase at the time was "burn, baby, burn". First Booker T & The MGs, then The Mad Lads, The Astors, Carla Thomas, William Bell, The Mar-Keys, and finally Rufus Thomas. Due to the Watts riots, Stax felt at the time that it was inappropriate to go ahead with the projected release of a live album from the shows. So here you have it 27 years later, the legendary Stax Revue Live At The 5/4 Ballroom .
