Not yet rated | write a review
Personnel: Otis Redding (vocals); Steve Cropper (guitar); Andrew Love (tenor saxophone); Floyd Newman (baritone saxophone); Wayne Jackson, Gene "Bowlegs" Miller (trumpet); Isaac Hayes, Booker T. Jones (keyboards); Donald "Duck" Dunn (bass); Al Jackson Jr. (drums); Earl Sims (background vocals). Recorded at Stax Recording Studios, Memphis, Tennessee in July of 1965 except track 5 recorded in April of 1965. Originally released on Volt (412). Includes original release liner notes by Bob Rolontz. Digitally remastered by Bill Inglot and Dan Hersch (DigiPrep). The man who bought classic soul music to the white masses at the Monterey Pop Festival died later that year, just as he was really gearing up for a creative burst that included "Dock Of The Bay." This is the finest of many classic Otis albums in the soul genre and an automatic recommendation for anyone's playlist. Redding could make you dance and scream and the next minute have you crying yourself to sleep, such was his wide emotional range. Compare the power of "Respect" and "Shake" to the passion of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and "My Girl." Untouchable.
