On the aptly titled Doin' Our Thing (1968), the famed Stax house band indeed play their own compositions, to be heard in the album opener "I Can Dig It", the title track and "Blue On Green".

But the boys also make a list of classic Soul and R&B covers their own. They tackle famous tracks like "Expressway To Your Heart", written by the famed producer duo Gamble & Huff and popularized by the Soul Survivors in 1967. "The Beat Goes On", originally written by Sonny Bono (who made it an evergreen with his then-wife Cher) is sprinkled with some Booker T. magic and "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by Holland, Dozier & Holland gets the ever-so-funky organ treatment.

A top notch must-have R&B classic.
