Otis Redding - The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul Complete & Unbelievable
The last time I did a post about Otis Redding, nobody gave a shit. In fact, I think that Otis is a victim of his popularity. Everybody possess at least one Otis Redding Greatest Hits album but only a few actually bought an entire Otis Redding album. His songs are so popular that you just wonder why spending time and money to buy them once more.The answer is maybe because if Greatests Hits are useful to discover an artist repertoire, they reduce him to his main hits and ignore the richness of his complete albums. Released on Stax subsidiary Volt in 1966 The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul Complete & Unbelievable features Otis at his best. Southern soul in fact never sounded this good, with a perfect backdrop created by Memphis finest (Booker T and the MG's, Isaac Hayes and The Memphis Horns). It was just impossible to me not to mention this record.
