Editorial Reviews

The King Of Soul coincides with the 50th anniversary of Redding s debut album, Pain In My Heart, which helped define the sound of Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee. This set features 92 songs and retraces the singer s career from his meteoric rise to his untimely death in a 1967 plane crash.

The songs reveal the breadth of Redding s talent, starting with his gift for songwriting: "I Can t Turn You Loose," "Ole Man Trouble" and "(Sittin On) The Dock of the Bay," his posthumous #1 hit. His reputation as a magnetic and dynamic performer is well served by a selection of live performances recorded in 1966 at the Whisky a Go Go in L.A. ("These Arms of Mine" and "Papa s Got a Brand New Bag") and in 1967 during the legendary Stax/Volt Revue tour of Europe ("Shake" and "Try a Little Tenderness.")

Redding was also an expert interpreter of other artist s work, putting his distinct twist on everything from Solomon Burke s "Down in the Valley" and William Bell s "You Don t Miss Your Water," to the Stones "(I Can t Get No) Satisfaction" and Smokey Robinson s "My Girl." The King Of Soul also spotlights his unforgettable collaborations with singer Carla Thomas like "Lovey Dovey" and "Tramp."

Format:Audio CD
Otis Redding was both an influential interpretive vocalist and an impassioned singer/songwriter, but whether Otis Redding was actually the king of Soul music is, naturally, open to discussion among fans of the genre. After all, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder were all worthy of the throne in their own right. But one fact simply cannot be disputed: Otis Redding was most certainly Soul music royalty and remains so to this day.

The 4-disc/92-track box set "The King Of Soul" is a deeply satisfying anthology which contains both studio and live recordings -- singles as well as essential LP tracks -- from various sources, including landmark albums like 1965's "Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul" and 1968's "The Dock Of The Bay". Otis Redding was a balladeer extraordinaire; while he did record numerous energetic and memorable Soul stompers ("Shake", "Chain Gang", "Respect", etc.), he particularly excelled at raunchy, stirring Southern Soul ballads such as "That's How Strong My Love Is", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "These Arms Of Mine", and "Try A Little Tenderness". Released by Rhino Records, a label which specializes in archival reissues. Also see Rhino Records' "The Queen Of Soul" 4-disc box set by Aretha Franklin.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great overview February 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
when you get a box set you hope it covers all the basis and also does it live up to the title and the answer to that question is yes and strongly. vocally he is one of the most important voices in the R&B world and still remains a Giant then as much as now. and this overview covers his depth, range and versatility and impact. so many acts were inspired and moved by this Man's powerful down home folk vibe which hits the core. this is easily one of the best box sets that i have ever gotten and had period. enjoyed it from start to finish and just the gut bucket tone and feel of his voice and how the music flowed. he was equally as strong as a live performer as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great set -- but no notes! August 12, 2014
By Puzzled
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An ideal selection, well mastered, lots of rare gems, in short, the overview one would want. But it is simply inexcusable to have no notes, all the more in a "50th Anniversary" set. Those of us still buying CDs do so for the packaging as well as the sound, and this one falls so far short that it is actually a disappointment. Think of who could have been asked to write them -- Peter Guralnick, for one. Redding -- and I -- deserved more than this...

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty complete Otis anthology March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Four stars for a 4CD set that replaces the 1993 Otis set on Rhino, the release of which coincided with a 29 cent Otis stamp. The music goes without saying - Big O was and is the King of Soul without peer however close many others - Solomon Burke, Percy Sledge, James Carr, Joe Tex, Luther Ingram, Jerry Butler, Wilson Pickett, Joe Simon, Z.Z. Hill - came, they were all good but none was in the same class as Otis. Everything on the set apart from the last two tracks on CD3 and all of CD4 are in mono. The set has apparently been remastered for this reissue by Charles Benson from Rhino but shows only a slight improvement in sonics over the 93 set - nothing remotely close to the stunning, hair tingling, sound redefining remastering job that Joe Tarantino did on Lonely & Blue: The Deepest Soul of Otis Redding with many of the same master tapes. The packaging is minimal, very budget oriented. I guess the hope that Atlantic/Rhino would contract Mr.Tarantino to remaster the complete Otis catalog for repackaging on Rhino Handmade will have to go into a bucket list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mastering - especially the 4th CD June 10, 2014
By searat

There is no disputing that Otis is at the top of the greats of R + B. And that's the "good oe" R+ B -not the new stuff with no soul.........

The entire selection of songs is fabulous and covers it all. The quality of recordings is a nice step up from the past CD's, surpassing all other recordings I have.

Of special mention is the material on the 4th CD. The live stuff is good, but when you listen to the stereo stuff the last half of that 4th cd - "hold on". It is the best Otis I have ever heard - it's stereo, crystal clear, the band was tight and full sounding- and Otis was really on. I never heard these renditions before, some entirely new songs too, this is the real treasure of this collection. If you have Otis as a favorite, then you will be blown away from these last cuts in stereo.

Wish they would have added some better liner notes info to the collection, but the music is there!
