Cousins Mel Hardin and Tim McPherson, both from Holly Springs, Mississippi, first recorded for Gene Chandler's Bamboo Records in 1969. In 1971, they were signed by Barry Beckett at Muscle Shoals sound studio and recorded "Starting All Over Again", which master was bought by Stax Records, starting a string of Stax hits and sort of filling the gap left by Sam & Dave after the split with Atlantic in 1968. Unfortunately Tim has passed away.
