Any Stax experts.here?

I hope a Stax expert can help me out here.
I'm aware of the split with Atlantic, and the situation whereby Stax 'lost' all their masters up to early 1968.
I believe that Stax still retained all unissued recordings( including alternate versions) from prior to 1968.
I believe it was quite a number of years later that pre 68 ( blue Stax) and post 68 ( Yellow Stax) were issued together on compilations due to record companies merging /licenceing etc.

But I was thrown by a 1969 LP of Eddie Floyd "Rare Stamps" on Yellow Stax which features a lot of Blue Stax ( pre the 68 Split) that Stax no longer owned.
So...is "Rare Stamps" made up of alternate versions of tracks such as "Knock on wood" , " Big Bird", " Raise your hand" etc???
Not the masters owned by Atlantic and unavailable to Stax for releasing.

Melody Gardot new album Sunset In the Blue out now.

One of my favorite singers just released a new album:

Sunset in the Blue is an orchestral celebration of Melody Gardot's jazz roots, reuniting with the multi-Grammy winning team from her platinum-selling album `My One and Only Thrill': Producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock), arranger/composer Vince Mendoza ((Bjork, Robbie Williams, Elvis Costello), legendary engineer Al Schmitt (Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney). An underlying theme of determination to evolve her craft, present in all her work, continues on the new project.
