The MG's is a 1973 album recorded by The MG's for Stax Records. Both frontman Booker T. Jones and guitarist Steve Cropper were estranged from Stax by 1973. Remaining members Donald "Duck" Dunn and Al Jackson, Jr. recruited Bobby Manuel to replace Cropper and Carson Whitsett to replace Jones.[2]

Billed as The MG's since Jones was not involved with the project, the group released two singles, "Sugar Cane" and "Neck Bone". The singles and the album were not commercially successful, but were critically well received.[2] By 1975, Jones and Cropper agreed to reform the original lineup with Jackson and Dunn, but just days before their scheduled reunion, Jackson was murdered at his home in Memphis, Tennessee.[3]
