Product Description

Album Review

The Very Best of Otis Redding is a wonderful 40-track overview of Otis Redding's brief career, and it hits most of the high points, including such classics as "Respect," "Try a Little Tenderness," "Pain in My Heart," and "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." Also included are Redding's near-definitive version of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" and the gorgeous (and heartbreaking) "I've Got Dreams to Remember," a Redding original. --Steve Leggett, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars It IS the Very Best of Otis !! 27 Mar 2011
By Leonard Fleisig TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
How do you like your soul? Haunting and mournful? Otis does that - in Pain in My Heart and I've Been Loving You Too Long. Do you like it raw and powerful? Otis does that in Respect and Satisfaction. Love songs? Try My Lover's Prayer. When I first looked at the CD - I wondered why Dock of the Bay was not the last song. It just seemed fitting that the CD would close with Otis' posthumous hit. But I've Got Dreams to Remember serves, in my opinion, as a more apt closing track. We've got Otis to remember - and this CD does a great job of helping people discover and/or rediscover a remarkable talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Otis Redding's legacy lives on in this album.... 29 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Rhino's The Very Best of Otis Redding is a wonderful 16-track "Greatest Hits" compilation of soul music by the late singer. Not only was Redding a great singer, but he was also an accomplished songwriter; 10 of the tracks on this album were written or co-written by Redding (including "Respect," which was famously covered by the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin). One can't listen to this "Very Best of..." collection and wonder what soul music could have been had Redding survived the airplane crash that silenced him on Dec. 10, 1967.
No wonder, then, that a generation of rock and rollers embraced his music after his death. Most of them (myself included) had not heard of him before his death. As The Very Best of Otis Redding shows, he left a rich legacy that is surprising for such a young man.
Like most of the great singers of the genre, Redding sang his songs with such heartfelt emotion feelings that he drew the listener into feeling he or she was actually in Redding's heart and soul.
I was only 13 when I first heard Redding's posthumous No. 1 hit, (Sittin' On) The Dock of The Bay. When I read the liner notes of this CD, I was saddened by the fact that he never got to realize how big a hit that song became. (Three months after his premature death, (Sittin' on) The Dock of The Bay climbed to become No. 1 song on the charts.
While I enjoy the entire album, my three favorite songs on this CD are (Sittin' On) The Dock of The Bay, That's How Strong My Love Is, and I've Got Dreams to Remember.
If you want a good soulful music CD by one of the greats of the genre, The Very of Otis Redding is definitely worth your money and your time.
