Out of print in the U.S.! UK CD pressing of this 1969 release from the Soul belter. While Otis Redding died in 1967, just as he was achieving the success he so richly deserved, his recorded output proves that his talents were in full force even before the world began to take notice. This album was released posthumously and consists of recordings that Otis had been making in 1967. Features the hits 'Love Man' and 'Free Me'. Warner.
SOULFUL SON OF THE AFRICAN SOIL

"After looking out for the track, "Direct Me" for over 25 years I finally have a full compilation of the rarest talent in soul. "Direct Me" is a national anthem, second to none. For thirty-something years the music of Otis Redding, has tought me how to respect and honour, especially our momen. For the third generation in my household, we all give that "...little tenderness". If we all could have the "Love Man" in our hearts, the world could be homely to all mankind. It takes a loving man to direct the destiny of weapons of human destruction away from the innocent women and children."

"This is undoubtedly, hands down, the best Otis Redding Album ever released. Eventhough it is one of the posthumous releases it contains Otis' greatest accomplishments as a performer and a songwriter(a facet of his genius which is, unfortunately, not as recognized as it should be). Alot of people say that "Otis Blue" is his best album and it is undeniably amazing. All of his recordings, live and studio, are mindblowing. But contrary to what the reviewer below asserts this is not an album to get after you've heard the "key" ones. Get this now and here Otis at his best."
