"In Session" Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded live for television on December 6, 1983, at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Initially King wasn't going to do the show as he didn't know who Stevie Ray Vaughan was. He didn't realize that Stevie Ray Vaughan was actually 'little Stevie', the 'skinny kid' that he let sit in when King played in Texas. When he realized who Stevie Ray Vaughan was, he agreed to play. amzn.to/AAQxix

Booker T. Jones said: "We recorded a Blues which we called "Behave Yourself," and I played it on a Hammond M3 organ. Jim Stewart told us that we needed a song for the B-side, since we couldn't have a one-sided record. We tried a tune I wrote for piano on Hammond organ so that the record would have organ on both sides and that turned out to be "Green Onions.'"When asked what prompted the title Booker replied, "Because that is the nastiest thing I can think of and it's something you throw away."
