More filling than the two Very Best CDs in the Otis Redding catalog, less hefty than the four-disc Otis! box, Dreams to Remember is a double set of highlights that's no doubt just what many new and old fans need. Mixing signature numbers such as "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay" and "Respect" with lesser-known works of genius like "I Love You More Than Words Can Say" and "Trick or Treat," this package gives Redding his due once more--and in superfine style. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars "Dreams To Remember" Is The Best Buy September 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In addition to "Dreams To Remember", there are two other Otis Redding collections, that merit consideration, each for entirely different reasons. The first is for the casual fan, "The Very Best of Otis Redding" which are two seperate releases and each CD contains 16 studio cuts, for a total of 32 songs. The second is the exhaustive "Definitive Otis Redding" with 162 cuts on 4 CDs; far more material than a casual fan may ever want to own. "Dreams To Remember", the most recent collection on Rhino, occupies a space somewhere between casual and serious.

The lightweight "Very Best" is good, but there are too many "covers" included. Everyone wants to hear the Otis version of "Satisfaction", but the inclusion of cover versions of "My Girl", "Day Tripper", "Amen" and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" make the second volume of "Very Best" almost unendurable upon repeated listenings. The clever buyer will realize that "Dreams To Remember" has a price eligible for free shipping on Amazon, while buying the two seperate volumes of "Very Best" does not qualify for free shipping, so the ultimate price of the "Very Best" adds to about the same price as "Dreams To Remember" when you factor shipping costs. So do the math...for the same price as "Very Best" which contains 32 cuts, you can purchase "Dreams To Remember" which contains 55 cuts and none of the insipid pop covers, but does contain more of his signature deep soul sound, plus a few "live cuts" from his groundbreaking performance at Monterey Pop. "Dreams To Remember" trumps the two volume "Very Best", hands down.

Finally there is the all encompassing "Definitive" 4 CD collection. Anytime you shell out a premium retail price for an exhaustive anthology, it begs the question of how much is too much of a particular artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars You got ta got ta... June 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're like me, you recognize 7 or 8 songs -- the big hits -- on this set and you're wondering if Redding has enough great songs to fill two CD's. I took the plunge because I loved those 7 or 8 songs; Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay, Try a Little Tenderness, Mr. Pitiful, and others. The answer is yes. Otis just tears you up, wrecks you, brings you to your freaking knees, song after song after song. Now, I'm thinking maybe I should have bought the 4 CD set. You've got to have Otis Redding in your collection and you don't want to just have the 7 or 8 hits. Trust me, you want to put Otis on and leave him on. This is a great set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul in a box May 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a very slick two-disc set. Great care has been taken to put together an accurate timeline which touches on all of the major highlights of Redding's career. Reading the booklet while grooving to the music is a moving experience - one that Rhino Records should be proud of. Readers are led from Otis Redding's discovery to the tragic plane crash that ended his life.
Otis died at the age of 26 - which makes it all the more amazing that his music has endured like it has. These two discs contain a total of 50 tracks, many of them from live shows. If you love soul music, this is one collection that you honestly should not be without. For a personal selection, try song #13 on disc 1, "Change Gonna Come."

By Nathan
Format:Audio CD
Now I don't usually like to fall into the trappings of buying any kind of "greatest hits" collections if I can help it, 'cause I've found that more often than not some really great and significant songs of the artists' career are left off, in favor of maybe less-than-stellar pop radio hits. I usually prefer to go out an' purchase all their albums if they interest me enough to do so. That would've been the case with ol' Otis Redding too except that when I saw this in the record store, I fell in love with the cover design, a caricature of Otis looking sad and comtemplative, standing in front of a theater marquee on a dimly-lit street at night, in front of what looks like an early model Chevrolet. That jus' screamed nostalgia to me, an' made me wish I had been around in the mid-'60s to go to a nightclub or theater and hear Otis' powerful voice writhe an' shout his beautiful passion into his microphone.
I'm serious, you ain't never heard a voice with more pure, gritty, unbrideled SOUL than that of Otis Redding. He sang his songs with an honesty and truth that can't be falsified, and that contemporary performers need to really take note of, if they expect to really, TRULY move people. I went through a really bad break-up this past year, an' Otis' voice was one of the only things that soothed and comforted me enough to allow me to sleep peacefully at night. Another difference is that no matter what it was with Otis, whether it was a pop radio hit or not, there was always meaning and feeling behind it. Listen to the ballads more than anything. 'Pain in My Heart', 'I've Been Loving You too Long (to Stop Now)', 'You Don't Miss Your Water' and 'Cigarettes and Coffee' and any of the mournful and heart-broken ballads, are jus' the stuff of genius and pure artistry. 'Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta-gotta-gotta get this album December 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic! The opening number, "Shout Bamalama" really gets you into the groove of the dynamite tracks on this album. This is especially driven home by the live at Monterey Festival tracks at the end of CD 2. Not only is this collection a tribute to one of Soul's greatest artists, but it is also a underlying recognition of the magnificence that the Stax house band Booker T. and the MGs brought to the tunes of "The Big O". From his relentless pounding of "Satisfaction", to the heart wrenching ballads, this really is a must buy for all those fans (old and new) who apreciate job satisfaction where music is concerned.
