“The Immortal Otis Redding” by Otis Redding - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1968Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

“The Immortal Otis Redding” – who could fail to be touched by that title in 1968? The intended seventh Otis Redding album, all recorded in the final month of his life in December ’67, was issued in June 1968, allowing sales of “The Dock of the Bay” compilation to subside. I’ve always thought it a great shame that “(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay” was housed on a compilation LP instead of its natural-born home, which should have been right here. My small gripe aside, you can’t go wrong with any Otis Redding album. If his name’s on it, the contents range from good to great to classic – he was so consistently fine that he could have offered a “satisfaction guaranteed or your money back” promise with zero effect on his not inconsiderable bank balance. He deserved his success – what a great loss to the world of music.
