The King of Soul

The King of Soul

The King of Soul he clearly was. Otis Redding’s death in 1967 ensured his stunning legacy would remain frozen in time, always telling the story of a singer who began hot with 1962's “These Arms of Mine” and ended hotter; “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was issued in January 1968. As a 92-track anthology, The King of Soul tells the tale well, often better and in more detail than any previous compilation of the man’s work. Featuring remastered mono versions of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” “Respect,” “Shake,” “Satisfaction," and “You Don’t Miss Your Water” and including seminal live versions of “Mr. Pitiful” and James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” from his days at the Whisky-A-Go-Go, plus his work with Carla Thomas and highlights from European appearances, The King of Soul is an expansive look at a singer who defined soul music for a generation. Few artists deserve such attention. Redding deserves every look he gets.
