Editorial Reviews

"A Year Before His Blossoming Career Was Tragically Cut Short In A Fatal Plane Crash, The Legendary Otis Redding Performed A Series Of Career-Defining Concerts Across The Us And Europe. This Stunning Dvd Captures Otis Ground-Breaking Appearance At The 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, And Includes Outtakes From His Stax/Volt Label European Tour In 1968, Both With Celebrated Backup Band Booker T And The Mgs (With The Mar-Keys). The European Tour Features Otis Delivering His Inimitable Passion On Try A Little Tenderness While Monterey Pop, The Worlds First Big Outdoor Rock Festival, And The Show That Broke Otis To A Mass White Audience, Sees The Soul Master Cutting Loose On Respect, Satisfaction, Ive Been Loving You And Many More Timeless Hits. Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay, The Number One Smash Written After Monterey And Recorded Only Three Days Before Reddings Death, Is Presented Here Over A Photo Montage, A Postscript To A Too Short But Brilliant Career."

This is the best video of Otis Redding available.
William Cole
I see why my people (parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles) had such a great time in the 60's.
Troy I. Morrison
And this addition is what really makes this dvd such a great package.

This is great stuff. A must for any Stax Records fan and highly recommended to any music fan as an introduction to the sounds that came from Soulsville U.S.A. in Memphis, TN, in the '60s. Redding's legendary Monterey Pop performance is here, looking and sounding better than ever. His version of "Try a Little Tenderness" here may be the best example of the power of the Stax sound. With Stax house band Booker T. & the MGs doing what they did best, building climax upon climax until the whole thing explodes, Redding blew away the West Coast audience in the rain at One in the Morning. The only disappointment on this dvd comes during this song. Instead of getting to watch the MGs and Otis knock the song out, we see Mama Cass and dozens of hippies relaxing and grazing in the grass. It's really frustrating at first, but one begins to appreciate the message in the song. Treat your woman right. And it shows why John Phillips (of the Mamas and Papas) once said that Otis could have been an ambassador of good will to the world. Also from Monterey Pop, we get an unbelievably moving and powerful version of Redding's and Jerry Butler's "I've Been Loving You Too Long".
The dvd also includes footage from the now famous Stax tour of Europe in 1967. And this addition is what really makes this dvd such a great package. Not only does it have Otis doing his thing, but also "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" and "Hold On, I'm Coming!" by Sam and Dave, and Booker T. & the MGs playing their first and biggest hit "Green Onions". One of the real thrills of this dvd is watching the late, great Al Jackson, Jr. of the MGs. Never will you see a more cool and in control drummer.

Format: DVD
There's a couple of issues with this DVD that the consumer should know about. First off, the programming of the disc itself is so bad that some lower quality DVD players will certainly have problems with it. (Case in point, my friend's cheap player wouldn't play it at all.)
Next, it implies that the entire track listing is of Otis performing live, but two of the songs are Sam and Dave (Something is Wrong and Hold On I'm Coming), and one is of Booker T & The MGs doing Green Onions. And the 'Dock of the Bay' is just a photo montage played over the (admittedly different) second take of the song, from the 'Remember Me' album of outtakes and such. Obviously, Otis never performed that song live. I think they included it in the track listing because they were afraid people wouldn't buy the disc if it didn't have it. In my opinion, if you're a big Otis fan, you know that song was never performed, certainly have one or two versions of it already, and quite frankly will feel a little insulted at it's inclusion. I was.
The last thing to consider is that while 'I've Been Loving You' is unquestionably the best song of the Monterey set, the other highlight, 'Try A Little Tenderness,' is also a montage. This is (for a change) no fault of the producers of the disc, as that's the footage available from Monterey. But it's kind of a drag to watch a bunch of shots of hippies making out and getting muddy while Otis is doing his second biggest hit.
All that being said, it is, of course, footage of Otis playing live for the most part, and as such is worth owning. I still give it five stars, with the caveat that you should be ready for what you're getting.

I'm a big Otis Redding fan. The Monteray Pop footage is excellent. The European tour footage is very bad visually but excellent vintage footage. I highly recommend it Otis Redding fans.

Old (or vintage) black and white video with poor quality but still one for the library. Another example of hard to find concerts from this time period. Very few great video and/or audio quality live performance out there. Hey, but it's Otis, you gotta have it.

This is the best video of Otis Redding available. It has his Monterey appearance as well as clips of his legendary European tour. Also great footage of Sam and Dave during the Paris concert. But much more important to me personally, it is absolutely essential for any Booker T and the MGs fan. The band is unbelievably tight and is the driving force behind all of the Stax vocalists. They steal the show. The best little band there ever was. Thoroughly satisfying.

The DVD is absolutely wonderful. The interview with Otis' wife was great. It gave a personal account of his life. I also enjoyed the interview with Otis. I don't think I've ever heard him talk! Thank you for such a quality documentary of a very talented man. This DVD is a must have.

This was a gift for my mother and when it arrived he said she was so happy. She played it immediately and haven't stopped. I love making my mother happy.
