Stax Records 1960

Satellite S-102 – Carla & Rufus – “Cause I Love You” b/w “Deep Down Inside”

Carla Thomas’ releases were optioned to Atlantic Records through an agreement of “first refusal” with executive Jerry Wexler.  Rufus Thomas was similarly optioned for Atco Records but actual releases never transpired

S-102 A S-102 B

Satellite S-103 – Charles Heinz – “Suddenly” b/w “Nobody Cares”

Satellite S-104 – Carla Thomas – “Gee Whiz” b/w “For You”
Charted #5 R&B #10 Hot 100 – Atlantic 2086

Carla Thomas had composed “Gee Whiz” at the age of 16 before signing on with Satellite Records – Stax and Atlantic entered into an agreement at this point for “first right of refusal” for Atlantic.  Thus Carla’s initial releases would go out primarily on Atlantic.  Jim Stewart desired to release all tracks on his own labels.  Eventually in the mid 1960’s he would realize this.  Atlantic would continue to distribute Stax recordings until they were sold and dissolved their agreement with Stewart.

S-104 A S-104 B

S-104 A ATL 2086S-104 A ATL 2086 B

Satellite S-105 – The Chips – “As You Can See” b/w “You Make Me Feel So Good”

The Chips had previously done some session work at Sun Records backing Jerry Lee Lewis – They would later become The Astors – The Chips were Curtis Johnson, Eddie Stanbeck, Sam Byrnes and Richard Griffin

S-105 A S-105 B

Stax Records 1961

In 1961 Satellite’s name is changed to “Stax” due to a conflict with a California label.  Thus the initials are lifted from STewart and AXton for the new name.

Atlantic 2101 – Carla Thomas – “A Love of My Own” b/w “Promises”

ATLANTIC 2101 A ATLANTIC 2101 B

Satellite S-106 – Jimmy & The Spartans – “You’re My Girl” b/w “Why Doesn’t She Notice Me”

Satellite S-107/Stax S-107 – The Mar-Keys – “Last Night” b/w “Night Before”
Charted #2 R&B #3 Hot 100

The Mar-Keys were a loosely organized group of session musicians who’s core evolved quickly into Booker T & The MG’s – Some members were formerly in the Memphis group “The Royal Spades”.

The first lineup included local teenager and paper boy Booker T. Washington on keyboards, Al Jackson Jr., on drums, Lewis Steinberg on bass (also of The Triumphs), Steve Cropper on guitar.  In a few years Donald “Duck” Dunn would replace Steinberg.  The group would soon  become the MG’s releasing a blues oriented song called “Behave Yourself” with an afterthought flip side “Green Onions”.

Volt 100 – The Triumphs – “Burnt Biscuits” b/w “Raw Dough”

The Triumphs were Marvell Thomas (keyboards), Chips Moman (guitar), Lewis Steinberg (bass) and Howard Grimes (drums).  It is not exactly clear to me how the Volt label name came into being but probably was influenced by Atlantic Records who would begin to distribute Volt releases via Atco Records.
