Rolling Stone (3/18/71, p.44) - "...they represent the very best of the Memphis musical heritage....With Booker T. (literally) pulling out the stops on the organ, and Duck Dunn and Al Jackson at their solid best, the album couldn't miss..."

This 1971 album was the last by the classic lineup of Booker T. and the M.G.s. A proposed reunion was derailed by the tragic death of drummer Al Jackson in 1975. Stylistically, MELTING POT is a rather far-reaching recording. This may or may not be because it's one of the group's few entirely self-penned albums.
James Brown's influence is clearly felt on such extended funk vamps as the title tune and "Chicken Pox." On "Back Home," the band shifts gears between gospel changes and straight blues. Named after the Indian tribe on "F-Troop," "Fuqawi" achieves a spooky Western movie feel. The biggest surprise is "Kinda Easy Like," which begins as a minor-key blues-almost a rewrite of "Green Onions," the group's biggest hit-and ends with an extended scat section sung by (uncredited) Swingle Singers wannabes.
