About this item
“(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” will be released as a 7” single on gold vinyl to mark the golden anniversary of 50 years since the single’s release. The track continues to transcend generations, holding the distinction of being one of a handful of songs from the ‘60s to have over 100 million streams on Spotify.
A detailed reproduction of the original mono single, it features the B-Side “Sweet Lorene,” is branded as a Volt release, and comes in a die-cut sleeve like those used by Atlantic Records, which was distributed Stax/Volt Records at the time.
This single includes the rare, original version of the song, which is shorter and with Redding’s vocals noticeably lower in the mix. This original version was quickly pulled after a brief release and replaced with the version that the world has known ever since. This anniversary 7-inch marks the first time the original version has appeared on vinyl since the initial release in 1968.
Millie says: Otis Redding bringing us this upbeat spectacular seven inch featuring the legendary (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay which is rightly pressed on gold coloured vinyl! Paired with this is the single “Sweet Lorene” which provides all your funk and soul needs.
