Memphis has produced many great musicians. Sam Phillips' Sun Studio, launched in February 1952, boasted Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison. Beale Street started BB King's career. And then there was Stax/Volt, home to Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Johnnie Taylor and Rufus Thomas. These Stax acts, ably backed by one of the greatest studio bands of all time, otherwise known as Booker T. and the MGs, have left us unmatched rhythm and blues. (Now, I'm not going to get into the argument of which had the greatest studio band, Detroit's Motown, Atlantic's Muscle Shoals, or Stax: I'm just not competent to do so, unfortunately. I'm just going to say that with Booker T and the MGs behind him, Otis Redding has to be on the short list for greatest rhythm and blues singer, greatest Southern soul singer, however you prefer to characterize his music.) "Sitting on The Dock of the Bay," "Knock on Wood," "Try a Little Tenderness," "I'm Coming Home:" the man had range. What he didn't have, on his own, was humor: that's where Carla Thomas, daughter of Rufus, came in. "Tramp" is an exuberant corn-pone-flavored duet: once heard, it lingers in the mind, or at least in mine. It's funny. The rest of this record, first released in 1967, lingers well, too: the covers of several rock and roll masterpieces like "Tell It Like It Is," "It Takes Two,"and "Bring It On Home to Me," are crisp, light-handed, and sure-footed.

People say that the late, great Marvin Gaye never sang better than when he was paired with Tammi Terrell; that's a matter of personal taste, and I wouldn't say the same about Otis Redding and Carla Thomas. I would say they sang superbly together: if you love 1960's Southern soul, you want to get this rare record before it goes out of print.

Otis Redding & Carla Thomas recorded one album together, but it is an R&B gem. Motown started the duet album trend by pairing Marvin Gaye with Mary Wells, Kim Weston & most famously Tammi Terrell, so this was Stax/Volt's rebuttal. The album is made up of mostly covers, but Mr. Redding & Ms. Thomas attack the songs with a ferocity and verve that makes them sound all there own. Mr. Redding's smooth voice easily mingles with the sass of Ms. Thomas' and this is no better illustrated than on "Tramp" which is pure Southern Soul. They do a tender take on Sam & Dave's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" and Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is" while ripping it up on Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood" & "Lovey Dovey". It is interesting to hear them do the Gaye/Weston song "It Takes Two" as there is always was a rivalry between Motown & Stax/Volt. King & Queen was a boastful title and the two more than live up to the claim.

I had to write this because I couldn't believe that none of the people that already reviewed it mentioned "Are You Lonely For Me, Baby?" Definately the best song on the album and one of the best Otis ever recorded. The rest kick ass too.

This album here is Stax's answer to the pairing of Motown artists Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell by combining two of its' own label mates Otis Redding and Carla Thomas together for their soul-singing efforts. To start with it kicks off their rendition of label-mate Eddie Floyd's Knock On Wood with more or less the same musicians used on the original recording[Nothing better than hearing that distinctive bass-line by "Duck" Dunn]. My favorite here is a rendition of Lowell Fulson's Tramp, which strikes me as a humorous down
play on one's character as we here Carla chewing down then spitting Otis out with her words[Just in case you didn't know, there's also a promo clip of Tramp depicting how Carla describes Otis-a farm boy, then he strikes back showing off his suit with pockets of money and all his cars. But Carla wasn't seen in that clip at all yet you hear her]. We also get renditions of Tell It Like It Is, It Takes Two(Speaking of Motown-Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston), When Something Is Wrong With My Baby(By label-mates Sam & Dave) and Bring It on Home to Me. Lovey-Dovey is a sweet item as well as Ooh Carla, Ooh Otis. Note that this album was Otis' 6th and final studio effort and it was Carla's 4th. Truly a Stax classic!

Format: Audio CD
Even though things would change drastically with the upcoming demise of both Otis Redding himself and the original Stax (in the latter case at least temporarily) his career was firing on all cylinders at this point with this album. In keeping with some of the uptown duet albums Marvin Gaye had released with many different female performers during this time Otis and labelmate Carla Thomas did the same thing on this album. The major difference here is approch of course. Whereas the Motorcity duet albums were slick uptown R&B this of course is the same sort of funky southern soul both artists had been doing from the outset. This approch is most evident in the funkified "Tramp",wherin Carla lovingly mocks Otis for being "country" in different ways from his overalls to his cash in hand set to some of Al Jackson's most economically funk rhythms. The two also take on the Marvin Gaye/Kim Weston duet "It Takes Two",of course this version far heavier on the classic MG's style rocking soul/gospel horns and rhythms.

A good majority of the rest of the cuts aside from the fast paced,high octane rendition of "Knock On Wood" and the closing "Ooh Carla Ooh Otis" the rest of the album tends towards slower Memphis soul balladry such as "Let Me Be Good To You",a version of Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" and the longing "New Years Resolution",celebrating both the urgent and the pleading side of their nature and,trust me those are two very different things. Even if this is the only proper duet album Otis Redding recorded it showcases how well he works the male/female back and forth while still very much maintaining his own style. Considering the output we now see it seems like Otis Redding spent a good majority of the year 1967 recording in the studio when he wasn't on the road. Perhaps all that performing helped with these inspired sessions but either way this is another one of Otis's great albums and,from what I hear he never was around long enough to make a bad one.
