After the success of the previous two posthumous releases, "Dock of the Bay" and "The Immortal Otis Redding," Steve Cropper put out another collection of unreleased studio material. This enjoyable disc features a dozen tracks culled from the vast amount of recordings Otis made prior to his untimely death in December of 1967. These songs were all from sessions done in his last year, with the usual accompaniment of Booker T. & the MG's and the Mar-Keys. For a compilation of leftovers, there are a number of gems to be found. "I'm A Changed Man," "That's A Good Idea," "Groovin' Time" and the title track are classic Redding, and the fantastic "Direct Me" features some great guitar work by Cropper. Only three covers are included: a spirited version of "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher," Brook Benton's "A Lover's Question," and the rollicking "Look At That Girl" with some nice female backing vocals. It may not be essential, but this album did produce a couple of Top 20 R&B hits ("Love Man" and "A Lover's Question") and it captures Otis during his most productive period. Once you have his key records, pick this one up. It's definitely worth a listen.
