PHILLIP RAULS MEMPHIS MUSIC PHOTOS OF THE 70's
Photo 8 Page reveals a change in strategy. After a lengthly and rewarding stint with Atlantic Records, Phillip aspired to convert his marketing abilities into the production and development of recording artist from his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. In 1974, Phillip returned to Memphis from Miami, Florida to join former associate Jim Stewart's STAX Records in the expansion of the Soul Music label's official entry into the Pop Music.
"People frequently asked why I would leave a cushie job with Atlantic living in beautiful Miami to return to Memphis?" said Phillip. "My only response to that was...there weren't any good Bar-B-Q restaurants in Miami."
