Booker T. Jones, one of the greatest musical talents ever to emerge from Memphis, included some rare vocal performances in this 2010 homecoming concert at the Levitt Shell. This show included many great hits he is known for with Booker T & the MGs, but also offered a chance to hear other music he has created in his remarkable career including "Born Under a Bad Sign" a song Jones co-wrote and , with the MGs, also performed on the original recording that became a huge hit for another STAX great: Albert King. The Overton Park Shell was renamed the Levitt Shell in 2008 in honor of a generous grant by the Mortimer Levitt Foundation that made possible a complete renovation of the historic amphitheater. This Booker T concert was a fundraiser to help support the Levitt Shell's program of 50 free concerts offered each year with the goal of building community through performing arts.
