“Green Onions” is the quintessential organ soul tune and the song that introduced millions to the sound of the Hammond B-3 organ 60 years ago. “Green Onions” has appeared in a long list of films and television shows, including Quadrophenia, Get Shorty, The Sopranos, and Ken Burn’s The Vietnam War. It is ranked #181 in Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest songs of all time. The Library of Congress added it to the National Recording Registry in 2012, and more recently it has amassed 200 million streams on Spotify.

Since then, Booker has lent his trademark keyboard chops to and produced classic albums such as Willie Nelson’s multi-platinum hit Stardust and Bill Withers’ Just As I Am featuring the hit song “Ain’t No Sunshine”.
