Stax Around The World
While Stax Records struggled to get their own label in the UK, they did appear in other countries. Below are some examples from Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Jamaica, Portugal and an Atlantic issue from Spain. Some European records were issued in picture sleeves giving added interest. Also, records that were on Stax subsidiaries (like 'Hip Records' ) in the USA appeared on the mainsteam Stax label elsewhere.

'Hip' hit appears with the Stax logo.
Rufus Thomas - 'Waliking The Dog' The Goodees - 'Condition Red'


Strange choice of colour for a 'Yellow period' single.

Most French singles came in picture covers.

Booker T. & The M.g.'s - 'Soul Limbo'
This is a typical European 'moulded' label from the 1970s. On the plus side - this one came in a nice picture cover.
Another 'Goodee'. This time with three logos - 'Hip', 'Paramount' and an unusual 'Stax Records'
The Goodees - 'Condition Red'
These look like bootlegs to me. The pressing and sound quality are very poor and there are no matrix numbers in the run-out groove.

See paper cover

Booker T. & The M.g.'s - 'Soul Clap 69' Booker T. & The M.g.'s - 'Jamaica This Morning'
This came in a 'Schweppes' promotional sleve. Unfortunately it has been covered in scribbles so it is not worth showing.
Bar-Kays - 'In The Hole'
An Altalntic issue
(year unknown)
with a psychedelic cover.
