Editorial Reviews

It still pains the heart that this LP was a posthumous one, its singer dead at 26. This is essential soul: the immortal title smash; Tramp (his hit with Carla Thomas); the stunning I Love You More Than Words Can Say; Let Me Come On Home , and more.

Format: Audio CD
Released shortly after his death, this album was the first of several posthumous Otis Redding releases. The fabulous title track reached number one on both the pop and R&B charts, introducing Otis' talent and emotive energy to a much wider (and whiter) audience. Inspired by the Beatles' adventurous songwriting, and his positive experience at the Monterey Pop Festival, he wrote "The Dock of the Bay" while relaxing in Sausalito. He recorded it on December 7, 1967, three days before the airplane crash that would take his life and four members of his touring band, The Bar-Kays. The song was unlike anything he had released thus far, and showed the promising artistic direction he was headed in. Guitarist, co-writer, and friend Steve Cropper compiled this tribute album around it, gathering together some of his past singles, along with the unreleased ballad "Open The Door." There are plenty of great songs, such as the magnificent "Let Me Come On Home," "Don't Mess With Cupid," and his classic duet with Carla Thomas, "Tramp." The funky "Huckle-Buck" is from the Stax "Stay In School" record, and two fine cuts from earlier albums close out the set. As always, the backing musicians on all of the tracks are the fantastic Stax players of Booker T. & The MG's and the Mar-Keys. This disc is a testament to Otis Redding's mastery of his craft, and makes for a decent primer on his sound. It was soon followed by "The Immortal Otis Redding," an excellent collection of unreleased studio recordings.

I listen to this album every day and think what a tradgedy it is that Otis Redding died before his time. The music that this man was starting to create is the epitomy of soul and I am moved nearly to tears listenting to Otis belt out such tunes as 'Ole Man Trouble', 'Let Me Come Home', and 'The Glory of Love' and in the next moment smiling and laughing along with Otis on the tunes 'Tramp' and 'The Huckle-Buck'. I am a fan of all generes of music and this is the one album I would reccomend to anyone, no matter what kind of music they prefer. Listen to 'Dock of the Bay' I gurantee you will fall in love with Otis Redding.

I stayed away from this CD for years simply because 'Dock of the Bay' was so overexposed. Recently, I gave this one a chance and it exceeded my expectations. I still think 'Immortal Otis' is the essential Otis Redding album. However, this one will blow you away too. He just has a way of owning a song and making it completely his. Otis has covered a few songs and they all take on new meaning, like 'Respect.'- just totally Otis. People have tried to take on Otis, as cover material, but his style is simply too unique, too much soul for any mere mortal.

They just don't make them like this anymore. They must have lost the recipe. You've heard The Dock of the Bay, but have you heard The Glory of Love?

Nobody had the Soul of Otis Redding. His phrasing is just amazing. Sundaze's re-issue just sounds great. The horns are wonderful. The snare just snaps on all the tracks.

I think the previous review misses the point of Sundaze's re-isssue philosophy. It isn't to include extras. The point is the vinyl has been out of print for years. Those of us that are looking for a great sounding copy of the original issue on vinyl are rewarded by this re-issue.

I always loved BIG O since I heard him as a teenager
This lp cd etc Means a lot to me .. for 2 reasons
1. is its Otis (he never IMHO Sang a bad song he had so much funk soul grit energy he could do it all
ballad dance covers and make those covers like he was the original ..
I could go on and on
Tho he played his last show in my area Cleveland Ohio and wanted to see him
Tho 2nd reasons i wasn't allowed to go Dec 9th ( upbeat show was like a American bandstand tho better as in more diverse
with artist ) My dad just passed away over Thanksgiving time and also my older Sister was
having her 19 b-day party and My mom wanted to stay for it
She also said Otis will tour here in the spring
Tho that day December the 10 after his very last concert at Leos casino Dec 9th a 21 older club
Tragic Plane crash near Madison Wisconsin Dec 10 1967 RIP BIG O
So its very personal LP For me
I know its was hard for Cropper to mix it and
Atlantic wanted to rush it out etc and
And will never know what BIG O would have done since he had 3-4 LP Worth of songs to fill in that # number
songs
Tho i remember hearing the single Dock of the bay which was in mono ..
Then buying the LP and hearing him sing in stereo ( which i am one who loves stax stereo .. :)
Just blew me away ...
So I could review each song tho .. i just like the way had b- sides and 2 unreleased and
A lot of stories go on who picked what etc ...why Steve picked what he did ...
Its shows BIG O depth and the many styles he has done
Also lil side note after Janis as in Joplin seen him at Monterrey festival 67 She changed her whole
style and singing like he did she loved him
A must own for fans of BIG O and music lovers of soul and rb and funk pop\rock bluesy music
Get the vinyl excellent stereo version and mix
peace and
music always :)
