Otis Redding...The Definitive Collection
Otis Redding was a major force in 60's soul music. His vocals were outstanding and one can not listen to this album without thinking what could have been if he had not tragically died in 1967. His lyrics are well written and have meaning without sounding trite. "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay" is his signature song but there are many other tracks that are on the same level, like "Mr Pitiful", "Hard to Handle" and "Try A Little Tenderness". Many of these were revived when "The Commitments" movie was released and were featured on the soundtrack.
