Someone kindly uploaded a well-recorded 1967 Stax Revue TV Special from Norway to Youtube.
The late Al Jackson Jr’s drumming steals the show (natch). They tell us he was murdered, but one can’t help but wonder if he was, in truth, smitten by a jealous god.

Check out 3:48 in clip # 5: some kid is out cold (I suspect the kid was overwhelmed by Mr. Jackson’s drumming–not Otis Redding’s pedestrian reading of “My Girl”).
