Nobody burrowed more deeply into a song than Otis Redding -- hands down, the most emotive, soulful singer the '60s ever produced. Redding's impassioned, sweat-soaked delivery kept him straddling both pop and soul charts until his untimely death in 1967. Here is a high-definition exact reproduction of 1967's Live in Europe. Everything is taken from the absolute master tapes in knockout stereo. Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fabulous!

"Even 40 years later, you still wonder what Otis Redding might have accomplished if that plane hadn't messed up! Otis was the Muddy Waters of soul music - the absolute king who took everything he wanted and made it better. If you ever get the chance, tour the Stax Museum in Memphis, stand in that studio, listen to the recording session, and imagine you've found the secret to time travel. When I was there, several of us old guys had tears in our eyes imagining we had found our grail.
As great as Otis was in that studio, he was even better when he toured with Booker T & the MGs. With a crowd radiating joy, Otis led everyone to another level. On this CD, he doesn't just recreate some of the finest songs ever recorded, he makes them defining moments. I don't duplicate too many live and studio recordings of the same song on my iPod (there is a limit to how many songs you can put on that thing!), but all of these are on their with their studio partners."
