OTIS REDDING

“Dock Of The Bay Sessions” was compiled with input from Roger Armstrong of Ace Records and Otis biographer Jonathan Gould and has the Redding family’s full endorsement. Although the individual tracks have been previously released across a smattering of posthumous albums and compilations, this marks the first time they have been assembled to resemble what this album could possibly have been.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the album’s opening track “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay,” one of the last songs Redding ever recorded. Released in January 1968, it soon topped the charts in March 16th in the US becoming the first posthumous #1 single in the history of the U.S. music charts. It also reached number 3 in the UK, and went on to sell more than four million copies worldwide.

Otis Redding

Complete & Unbelievable.... The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul

Otis Redding helped define soul music in 1966 with "Complete And Unbelievable… The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul". The album, which peaked at #5 on the R&B charts, was once praised by critic Jon Landau as “The finest record ever to come out of Memphis and certainly the best example of modern soul ever recorded.” To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this landmark recording, a deluxe edition is released which includes both the mono and stereo versions of the album in one package. Also included is a bonus 7" reissue of the 1966 single "Try A Little Tenderness" backed with "I'm Sick Y'All".

Otis Redding

Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul

One of the most influential soul singers of the 1960s, Otis Redding exemplified to many listeners the power of Southern "deep soul" – hoarse, gritty vocals, brassy arrangements, and an emotional way with both party tunes and aching ballads. At the time of his tragic death at the age of 26, Redding was on the verge of breaking through to a wide pop audience (which he would indeed do with his posthumous number one single "[Sittin' On] The Dock of the Bay"). He was also tremendously respected by many white groups, particularly the Rolling Stones, who covered Redding's "Pain in My Heart." (via Allmusic.com)
