The original recording of Memphis Soul Stew was in 1967.

No mention of Bobby Keys, Rolling Stones, "Can't You Hear Me Knocking"?

Yes, very good energy.

2 really truly classic sax solos of the 70's that jump out first TO ME, would be:

JUST THE WAY YOU ARE and BORN TO RUN.

I say this because both are solos that you can sing from beginning to end, and when played at a gig, people EXPECT to hear the original solos, because they are so memorable and legendary, note for note.
Not jam-it-out type solos, but they almost sound written out because they are so perfect in those songs.

Nice! The Edgar Winter was a surprise ! Of course Maceo, but if you're doing R&B you have to open it up to players like Stanley Turrentine, and, ahem, Ronnie Cuber.

Have to go with Junior in this bunch.

Here is my toss in the pile for this weeks suggestion. https://youtu.be/X-BJVDuP9dI Pick Up The Pieces by the Average White Band.

Interesting observation to this time period of hardware.
Bowie (ZooTheSim video)has a mic in his neck. King Curtis as well as Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan from the Average White band.
