Green Onions

Green Onions is a soul album by Booker T. & the MG's, released in October of 1962 (see 1962 in music). Entirely instrumental, the album broke Booker T. & the MG's into the mainstream. The band was not able to capitalize on their fame with future releases though, and Green Onions is widely considered the artistic and popular peak of their career.

Green Onions peaked at #33 on Billboard's (North America) Pop Albums chart.
