Product Description

CD Description

Through a rising career tragically cut short with his untimely passing in a plane crash in December 1967 at the age of 26, Otis Redding – known affectionately as ‘The Big O’ – left such a strong stamp on the world of music that he justifiably was called ‘The King Of Soul.’ Although he’s probably best remembered for “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay,” a massive global hit just weeks after his death, Otis was much-loved by soul music fans everywhere through ballads like “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and “Try A Little Tenderness” and grooves like his original of “Respect” and “Mr. Pitiful.” A dynamic and energetic live performer who wowed audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, Otis embodied the very word ‘soul’ and this great collection is a reminder of his musical legacy. This collection features hits from across Redding’s back catalogue of albums including the UK Number 1 album ‘The Dock Of The Bay’ and was lovingly compiled by soul expert David Nathan, founder of www.soulmusic.com. The booklet also features in-depth sleeve notes charting Redding’s fascinating and tragically short life story. This is the first 2CD mid price Otis Redding compilation available in the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but could have been even better 10 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Despite having such a short career, Otis Redding had one of the best & most recognisable voices not just in Soul but of any genre. The emotion conveyed in his delivery was heart-wrenching: many of his songs still make the hairs on my neck or arms stand on end after literally hundreds of listens.

Amongst his repertoire are songs written by some of the most famous names in the industry: Jagger/Richards; Lennon/McCartney; Sam Cooke; Smokey Robinson; and of course Redding himself, often with Steve Cropper of Booker T & the MG's.

Add to this the fact that Rhino are widely regarded as having produced many of the best re-releases & compilations over the last couple of decades -with almost universally excellent sound quality, and the insightful information in the booklets alone often worth the purchase price without the actual discs- and you wonder what could possibly prevent this cd from being worthy of 5 stars... Well, it's the track selection.

Of course Dock of the Bay and all the other biggest hits are here (Try a Little Tenderness, Tramp, I've Been Loving You Too Long, Respect, Satisfaction etc), but there are also tracks that even long-time fans of the great man may not be too familiar with (Direct Me, or I'm Coming Home for instance). And while these are by no means bad, how they made the album ahead of Otis' astonishing version of Sam Cooke's classic A Change is Gonna Come is baffling in the extreme. OK that didn't chart as a single, but this is a "best of" rather than greatest hits, and surely most people would consider this song as one of Otis' 40 best recordings? Also missing are You Don't Miss Your Water, You Left the Water Running, Come To Me, Stand By Me, Papa's Got a Brand New Bag and (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher.
