I’m listening to the Booker T Jones book, Time is Tight and I never knew Booker T produced Bill Withers first album, featuring the song Ain’t No Sunshine. The band was Booker T on keys and guitar, Steven Stills on lead guitar (Steve Cropper was unavailable), Duck Dunn on bass and Al Jackson on drums. Basically Booker T and the MG’s without Cropper.

Pretty cool. I had no idea.

I learned this not long ago as well, but from a Gadson interview. I've always thought that he did all the BW stuff. Stills was somewhat of a surprise, i have tremendous respect for this guy. And he did a great job!
