The final album the Bar-Kays released before the closure of Stax records in 1975, 1974's Cold Blooded expands the "black rock" sound the band helped invent in their backing work for Isaac Hayes and others on the label. The Bar-Kays molded funk to be the main expression of their sound by the mid-'70s, laying the groundwork for many bands to come. They'd become superstars after leaving Stax, but Cold Blooded laid the necessary groundwork for that to happen.
Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
