Tomorrow (Tuesday, February 21) evening, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music will host a free listening party from 4 - 6 p.m. for the newly released compilation by the somewhat obscure Memphis soul artist Wendy Rene titled After Laughter Comes Tears: Comeplete Stax & Volt Singles + Rarities 1964 - 65. Chris Herrington wrote a detailed review of the album two weeks ago which you can read here.
In addition to a full spin of the Wendy Rene record, attendees will be treated to a selection of soul 45s from local DJs Scott Bomar, Buck Wilders, Leroy, Beyonda, and Jones.
