There may understandably be some confusion as to the difference between the various instrumental groups that came out of Memphis in the ’60s. The Bar-Kays were created by drummer of Booker T & the MG’s, Al Jackson. Their one hit was “Soul Finger,” which hit # 17 in 1967. Most of the members were killed in the plane crash that also killed Otis Redding.
