The Very Best Of Otis Redding, a collection showcasing the late, great soul singer, whose heartfelt and wrenching vocalizing helped create some of the most memorable and emotional music of all time, is on sale in MP3 format for only $5.00 right now on Amazon.
Redding, who in his short life and career became a pioneer for the Atlantic/Stax brass-laden R&B sounds that were coming out of places like Memphis, is well represented on this release. You’d be hard pressed to find another “best of” album that has such memorable and amazing hits, B sides and non-hits. “These Arms of Mine,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” “Shake,” “That’s How Strong My Love Is”, “Respect” (which Redding had written and became a huge hit later for Aretha Franklin), a great cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction,” and the standards “Try A Little Tenderness” and his posthumous number one smash, released shortly after he tragically died in a plane crash in December 1967, “Dock of the Bay.” The man remains an incredible force in musical history, one that will never be forgotten and one that gets finer and finer with age, much like this collection.
