Oliver Wang is a fellow East-Bay’er whose biography reads like a vinyl geek’s dream (we’re all “culture critics” but few of us get paid for it).
Amongst his many enterprises Wang runs a site I keep close tabs on called Soul Sides (he calls it an audioblog, but I’m not crazy about that term so I’ll skip it — see! right there! I was criticizing culture!!). Anyway, today’s entry is an absolute doozy pointing out Stax classics focusing on the Mar-Keys, the purveyors of music that can be called no less than, well, “perfect.”
