Stax Records is an American record label, originally based in Memphis, Tennessee.
Stax Records is synonymous with Southern soul music. Originally known as Satellite, the Memphis company was founded in 1959 by Jim Stewart and his sister, Estelle Axton. Among the many artists who scored hits on Stax and its Volt subsidiary during the Sixties were Rufus and Carla Thomas, Booker T. & the MGs, Sam and Dave, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, and Otis Redding. Redding's death in 1967 signaled the end of the first Stax era. Subsequently the company spawned a new crop of hit-makers, among them Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, and the Dramatics.
Supreme has teamed up with Stax Records® for a group of three original T-Shirts featuring Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and the classic Stax Records® logo. This group will be offered along with two other T-Shirts for the Fall delivery.
