Title: Late Late Party
Artist: Axton, Charles
Label: Light in the Attic
UPC: 826853006729
Genre: Rock

2011 collection of tracks from the overlooked Soul/Rock/Funk sax player spanning the years 1965-67. In the vast netherworld of Soul, there are countless characters that reside on the fringe, their significant contributions to American music history long forgotten. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, tenor saxophone player and bandleader Charles Packy Axton is yet another of the uncelebrated, despite a deep pedigree and funky catalog of notable grooves. Part of the mighty Stax family through birth, Packy's mother Estelle Axton and uncle Jim Stewart founded the southern R&B dynasty in the early 1960's. Packy picked up the sax at a young age, and after linking with future Booker T. & the M.G.'s Steve Cropper and Donald Duck Dunn, formed the the Mar-Keys. Almost reaching the top of the R&B and pop charts in 1961 with the classic 'Last Night,' friction caused by Packy's party going ways caused a split. It wasn't until 1965 that the wild child had another national instrumental hit on his hands, 'Hole in the Wall' by the Packers.
