He'd only recently stolen the show at the Monterey Pop Festival, winning the hearts and minds of the white hippie audience; he'd just recorded "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay", now and forever one of soul's all-time greatest moments. And then he died in that horrible plane crash. The Immortal Otis Redding was the first posthumous release following Redding's tragic death, and it reveals the interesting direction Redding was taking in the studio during the last six weeks of his life. Produced by legendary Stax guitarist Steve Cropper, Redding often seems headed in a direction here primed for the funk of the future, although he never had the chance to put his final imprint on it. Ironically, nothing on this disc became a pop or R&B hit in the wake of "Dock of the Bay", although any number of tunes certainly qualify for that status. It may have been a case of too much, too soon. Not until two decades later did the Black Crowes' hit cover of "Hard to Handle", the best thing that band ever did, rightly echo the genius on this recording. --Bill Holdship

Who knows what Otis might have gone on to do? When he so tragically died he took with him a whole emerging genre of country soul. Everyone knows how radical Dock of the Bay was at the time and Otis himself said that that was just the start and watch out for what was gonna come. To me the stand out track, which does not get the recognition it deserves, is "Champagne and Wine" which sees Otis in relective mood, perfectly matched by Steve Cropper's spare and lean guitar arrangement. The horns are used in a different way too, pushing Otis's nostalgia for a lost love into ever deep soul musings, rather than making the corners his songs usually turn. "Waste of Time" is, at first hearing, a standard Volt 6/8 ballad of the type Otis made his own, but then he starts to pile on the suffering in a soul confessional that raises hairs on the back of your head. Everything on this track is perfect, the bass, the horns, the drums all combine to drive the song into your heart so you remember nothing else but the times you felt the same. "Nobody's fault but mine", "I've got dreams to remember" and "Amen" have a similar looking back, leaving things behind feel. It is as if Otis was looking back and saying thanks and sorry for any mistakes, clearing the decks for the next phase of his career, just like "Dock of the Bay". Sadly we'll never know what that might have been but on the evidence here it would have been altogether original. On "Think about it" the combination of voice, horns and the other instruments build up to a sly and sliding finale like nothing else you ever heard. Great album and the peak of southern country soul.

How many other posthumous albums are of this quality? I can't think of any that are this consistent (Jimi Hendrix's Cry Of Love & Rainbow Bridge are totally essential to any fan IMO but for some, a few tracks on them seem a little out of place.) Next to Otis Blue, this is one that you NEED to have (unless you don't like his music - then... why would you be reading this?)

The only way this could be (slightly) bettered is if it were the mono mixes (as most of his current CD issues are) but that's only minor and is fine the way it is - just that often the monos are a little 'punchier.'

Some say this is his most soulful album and as it doesn't really have anything like the novelty of a Rolling Stones or Sam Cooke number, played at in intense pace - I'd have to agree with that. Wonderful.
