Soul Limbo is the seventh studio album by the American R&B band Booker T. & the . s, released in 1968 on Stax Records. The album was the first Stax LP issued after the label severed its ties with former distributor Atlantic Records in 1968. The title track is perhaps best known in the UK as the theme tune for BBC Television's cricket coverage and later for Test Match Special. It features a marimba solo by Terry Manning. The song was later covered by the English punk band Snuff.

The carribean flavored title track (later famously used as the theme for Cricket on the BBC) was among the first hits (along with Johnnie Taylor's "Who's Makin' Love") that Stax scored. The MGs' albums at this point had been getting better and better peaking with 1967's terrific Hip Hug-Her. & the MG's. This 1968 album found the Memphis instrumental group running through the usual batch of then-current soul hit covers ("La La Means I Love You," "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy"), pop tunes ("Eleanor Rigby," "Foxy Lady") and hits like "Hang 'Em High" and the title track in their own trademark style. Most interesting are the tracks where Booker T. switches over to piano and the band suddenly becomes a very jazzy outfit, like "Willow Weep for Me" and "Over Easy.
