Otis Redding: A Legend!

Its a track from Otis' great 1964 album 'Pain in My Heart'.

What I love about Otis is the way he has managed to catch everybody's heart. Rockers, Mods, Rude Boys, Skinheads, and if there a generic name for the followers of Northern Soul, then they love him too. Even some of us Teds adore him! I certainly do.

Everybody knows the wonderful Dock of the Bay, but for me, this is the ultimate Otis track. That's because this is the one that hits all the right spots. No matter where you are coming from musically, this one is going to touch you!
