The Memphis Horns are best known not for their own recordings, but for their work on thousands of Memphis soul recordings as studio players in the 1960s and early 1970s. These included virtually all the records of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Rufus and Carla Thomas, some of Wilson Pickett's greatest work, and more other artists than can be counted.
