Beat Grinder

Damu The Fudgemunk
"Beat Grinder (Madvillain ReVISIONS Project)" from ReVISIONS (Damu vs. Joe Buck) [2009, Redefinition Records]

"Album Cover ReVISIONS is a spontaneous, ongoing digital art project originally conceived by acclaimed painter/illustrator/designer Joe Buck, along with Redefinition Records. Imagined as a way to pay tribute to, and expand upon a noteworthy theme or piece of art, the Album Cover ReVISION series allows the incredibly talented Buck to revise and present his vision of a particular album or single’s cover image as he sees fit.

Expanding further on the concept, from time to time, Joe Buck and DJ/producer/MC Damu The Fudgemunk will collaborate exclusively on special A/V editions of ReVISIONS. These special editions, available for free download, will feature a Joe Buck design alongside a related musical production by Washington DC native, Damu." -

More information on this project at the Redefinition Records website.

Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story

Great Performances
"Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story (trailer)" from Great Performances series (2007, PBS)

"Between 1959 and 1975, Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee released international chart-topping hits such as 'Soul Man,' 'Dock of the Bay,' 'Green Onions,' 'Midnight Hour,' 'Respect Yourself,' and the theme from SHAFT. The label's artists included Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. & the MG's, Rufus and Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, and even Richard Pryor and Jesse Jackson. Founded by a white conservative bank teller who played country fiddle music, Stax became the preeminent soul music label in America, and became identified with the civil rights movement of the 1960s and '70s. RESPECT YOURSELF documents the Stax label, its visionaries, and most of all, its music." -
