Otis Redding & Carla Thomas - King & Queen (Stax - 1967)

Rarely a record deserved better its title than this one. Male & female duets albums were a common soul figure but when you get two of the greatest legends of the Memphis label, Otis Redding and Carla Thomas in the same studio sessions with a dream team backing band (Booker T. Jones, Isaac Hayes, Steve Cropper), you just got one plate of hot boiling southern soul that will stand forever the test of time. The two singers exchange verses with a perfect feverish chemistry, reviewing classics hits of the time (Knock On Wood, Tramp, Tell It Like It Is, It Takes Two).
