5.0 out of 5 stars Soul master at the peak of his powers September 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Redding's live performances of the mid-60s are surprisingly well documented. Individual pieces of his work on Stax's package tours of Europe can be heard on Live in Europe, The Stax/Volt Revue, Vol. 1: Live in London, the Ace Records collection 1,000 Volts of Stax, and the DVD Stax/Volt Revue Live In Norway 1967. His stateside performances have turned up on several Monterey Pop artifacts, and two albums worth of tracks document his shows at the Whisky A Go Go (1 2). What separates this new release from the rest is the full picture of Redding's set at the top of the Stax ticket. Stretching to over an hour, the nineteen tracks collect performances from back-to-back concerts in London and Paris, showing off not only the incendiary songs, but the excitement of the shows, from Emperor Rosko's name-spelling introduction in London to the climactic renditions of "Try a Little Tenderness" that leave both audiences chanting for more.

Heading up a bill that featured Arthur Conley, Eddie Floyd and Sam & Dave, and backed by Booker T. and the M.G.'s and the Mar-Keys, Redding's headlining slot found the party already well under way. Even so, his introduction was enough to take the crowd to a new level of excitement. With the M.G.

5.0 out of 5 stars How about 10 stars? February 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Everyone has their own taste. For me, Otis was the greatest male vocalist ever. Period. As part of the touring Stax review, no artist got hour or more long sets, so these are actually (I think) the longest sets of the review shows. Hyperbolium did an excellent overview of the history and show details - much thanks.

All I can add is pounce. Otis' vocals are mixed front and center, but the band mix is very clear and crisp (Booker/MG's, MarKays - you simply do not get any tighter.)Both sets are on fire, starting with the MC whipping the audience into an early frenzy. Throughout the crowd response is audible and I think they kind of liked it ;-)

No highlights for me, just two red hot sets. And each Try a Little Tenderness goes higher and higher with the MC exhorting the crowd and Otis repeating the chorus over and over and over - it becomes a religious revival type experience. Fans know. The man sang with passion and all his soul. He put it all out there, every last ounce.

What a great loss. Otis uniquely was bridging R&R and R&B/soul, and his performance at Monterey opened the door to a large new audience. Who knows where it would have went from there. If anyone is not familiar with him, this is a great place to start. Then backtrack to his superb studio output and many other available live performances. There are also a couple of great DVD's - Remembering Otis and The Legacy of Otis Redding - to see the man do his thing. There will never be another like Otis Redding, and Stax/Volt has released a real treat here. I hope there is more to come...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredibly Exciting Performance! October 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The original album, "Otis Redding Live In Europe," has been one of my all-time favorite albums for more than 40 years. This expanded release has two full concerts that were edited into the original album. The London show is good, even very good. But the Paris show is incredible! It's an exuberant, exciting performance that will thrill you.

Otis Redding and the band (Booker T & the MGs with a Stax horn section) build the excitement and the tension, then release it some, then build it again to new heights. Otis Redding rips it up. He implores the band to "Keep the groove going!" The audience is going crazy. The band, driven by drummer Al Jackson, builds the tension further and further until it finally explodes at the end with "Try A Little Tenderness." The audience is really going crazy now. The MC begs Otis to come back out. Otis, the whole band and other headliners from the tour pour their hearts into the climax.

It doesn't get any better than this.

There are moments in time that stand out. Times when you wish you were there.

This is one of them.

Format:Audio CD
INCREDIBLE!!!!! Okay, my best friend got me recently the fantastic DVD of Stax/Volt Revue Live In Norway, and besides a reminder that Donald "Duck" Dunn is the greatest bass player who has ever lived, along with the thrill of seeing Arthur Conley and everybody else, was seeing more Otis footage besides his mind-blowing performance at Monterey. But that's another review; it reminded me once again of the greatness that was Otis Redding, and afterward I quickly stumbled across this CD here on Amazon. Luckily!

This CD consists of the entire CD "Live In Europe" (the second half of this, Paris 3/21/67), plus a London show from four days before that completely blows it away! It is utterly astonishing; maybe I should start expecting nothing less from Otis, I don't know! Respect is at a breakneck pace (though not as much as Monterey), and Otis's voice in as fine from as ever, and considering NOBODY sang every note with more intensity and true feeling, that says a LOT! The whole concert, like the opening of My Girl, or Shake, each song, is greeted with such an incredible response of utter joy, he beat anyone for getting a crowd going; he was a master live of reading his audience, and was at his peak power here. And the London crowd responds properly, bordering at times on pandemonium!

This has the best Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa you will EVER hear, I can't imagine a more soulful version; and Try A Little Tenderness, this one goes on so long, the audience manic, with Arthur Conley, Sam Moore and Carla Thomas all coming out. It's unbelievable. No words can completely convey how great this all is, but the liners here, this comes with a nice 16 page booklet, with brief but GREAT liners.
