Default Otis Redding

A soul legend. His hit "(Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay" is one of his most well known songs. Along with other classics like "Respect", "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", and "Try a Little Tenderness". Redding wrote many of his songs.

His cover of I Cant Get No Satisfaction is great. I have to say, Try a Little Tenderness and Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay are among my favorite songs of all time. Otis, a damn good reason for a soul forum.

Two other covers stand out as favourites of mine. 'My Girl' written by Smokey Robinson and Sam Cooke's 'Shake'.
No other artist could do justice to songs like these, other than Otis Redding.

i wonder sometimes at the paucity of soul legend threads and inteest in them on this board

i started an Aretha thread and only got 6 replies

the Otis thread is from 6 yrs ago and only 3 replies

is there some sort of prejudice/discrimination going on here?

well it is posted in the rap & hip-hop thread. No wonder it didn't get any replies.
It's in the wrong area entirely.

Well, I'd vote yes, but my opinion counts for jack ****

Who could have possibly thought Otis belonged in the rap/hip-hop thread, I can never recall a time where he spat some bars over a phat beat.

Otis Redding like many musicians are not apperciated at all. People want to focus on phony artists. That is the truth.

Redding is one of the ultimate at Lead Vocals. You'll notice the music just accents his vocals. He had the ability to resonate pure emotion through his voice.

(I Love You) More Than Words Could Ever Say is one of my personal favorite by Otis Redding.
