The Dock of the Bay

The Dock of the Bay

The Dock of the Bay is a testament to the gritty power of horn-driven Memphis soul, Stax-style. Otis Redding's grainy, vulnerable voice electrifies everything from laments like "Let Me Come On Home" and "I'm Coming Home to See About You" to rocking workouts "Tramp" (featuring an especially sassy Carla Thomas) and "The Huckle-Buck." Recorded three days before the 1967 plane crash that took his life, the title track simmers with a magical melancholy and kicks off an album devoted largely to homeward yearnings.
