10" Green Vinyl. Described as "one of the most popular instrumental rock and soul songs ever Green Onions is a twelve-bar blues with a rippling Hammond M3 organ line by Booker T. Jones that he wrote when he was just 17, although the actual recording was largely improvised while the band was waiting to record a session with another artist who was late to the studio.
"Green Onions" entered the Billboard Hot 100 the week ending August 11, 1962, and peaked at No. 3 the week ending September 29, 1962. The single also made it to No. 1 on the R&B singles chart, for four non-consecutive weeks, an unusual occurrence in that it fell in and out of top spot three times. The film Quadrophenia sparked a revival in 1980 when it peaked at No. 7 on January 26, 1980, and stayed on the chart for 12 weeks.
