Rufus and Carla Thomas helped launch the Stax era, both individually and as a team. Thomas brought his daughter to Stax in the hopes of finding suitable material, and she soon had “Gee Whiz” soaring to the top. Had Carla chosen to tour extensively, she might have been a great star in Aretha Franklin’s class; she sang with equal ferocity and power during this period. Rufus Thomas parlayed his dance/novelty tracks into international superstardom, but he was also a fine straight soul vocalist. This album splits its bill between the two, offering each a side to showcase their hits.
