Our Review

Primarily recorded on July 9, 1965 in one 24-hour recording session, Otis Redding’s third album, Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul, remains one of the landmarks of mid-60s R&B and soul music. This Collector’s Edition is the definitive version, offering both the mono and stereo mixes of the album (which include several different takes among them, including the slower, expanded version of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”), singles, b-sides and live tracks featuring either a rough pick-up group or Redding’s seasoned house band. All of Redding’s interpretive and vocal power is here, in his inspired originals — “Respect,” which would become a huge hit for Aretha Franklin, “Ole Man Trouble,” and “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” (written with Jerry Butler) in various mixes and versions — in the three Sam Cooke covers in tribute to the recently slain singer (“Change Gonna Come,” “Shake,” and “Wonderful World”), in the horn-powered cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction,” and more. The b-sides and alternate single mixes are a nice compliment, but it’s Otis on stage, feeding off the energy of the crowd and sending it back with his toughest, grittiest best that represents the full-dimension of his unique and never equaled talent.

Customer Reviews

Classic Even Better (5 stars)

For those who complain about too many songs on this album…say what? You are complaining about too many Otis Redding songs? What's wrong with you? Redding was one of the great voices of the 60s and an indispensable artist in the history of rock, soul, R&B, and ever genre in between. This is a fantastic document to the artist's true greatness and an essential purchase for every fan of music.


10.0 from Pitchfork (5 stars)

What the previous reviewer doesn't know is there are two complete versions of the album in this package: one mono, one stereo. Add the live cuts and, yes, you will see a lot of "repeats." But the quality is undiluted. There is nothing but pure soul on this album. One of the finest, most passionate, most nuanced records of the modern age. Ignore the boo-birds; this is the real thing!


Awesome!! (5 stars)

I'll just let the album speak for itself. Amazing. nuf said.


Biography

Born: September 09, 1941 in Dawson, GA
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '60s

One of the most influential soul singers of the 1960s, Otis Redding exemplified to many listeners the power of Southern “deep soul” — hoarse, gritty vocals, brassy arrangements, and an emotional way with both party tunes and aching ballads. He was also the most consistent exponent of the Stax sound, cutting his records at the Memphis label/studios that did much to update R&B into modern soul. His death at the age of 26 was tragic not just because he seemed on the verge of breaking through…
