Tunesday With George

Booker T.
Double-dose of The Roots this week (sort of). Pick number one is The Road From Memphis, the 2011 studio album by the legendary Booker T. Jones. For 2009's Potato Hole, Booker T. tabbed the Drive-By Truckers to be his backing band, but on his latest effort The Roots get the nod. The album also features guest vocals by Yim Yames, Sharon Jones and even Lou Reed.

The Roots
Pick number two is Undun, the recent December release by The Roots themselves. They've enjoyed a lot of recent success as Jimmy Fallon's house band, and this album finds them at the top of their game.
