2018 EU issue on 180g LP-The 12-song DOCK OF THE BAY SESSIONS collection was compiled with input from Roger Armstrong of Ace Records and Otis biographer Jonathan Gould and has the Redding family’s full endorsement. Although the individual tracks have been previously released across a smattering of posthumous albums and compilations, this marks the first time they have been assembled to resemble what this album could possibly have been. In the liner notes, musician-journalist Bob Stanley writes: “This album is the first indication of a new Otis Redding, one that has slayed audiences in Europe, one which won him a whole new crowd at the Monterey International Pop Festival.”

Otis Redding s The Dock Of The Bay albumspotlighting the deliciously wistful 67 charttopper of the same namestamped his Hall Of Fame ticket forever Cut from the original analog masters and now available on rocksolid 180gram vinyl The Dock Of The Bay cut just before his tragic plane crash in 1967 finds Otis Redding at the absolute peak of his art And thats as good as it gets

Released shortly after his death this album was the first of several posthumous Otis Redding releases The fabulous title track reached number one on both the pop and R&B charts introducing Otis talent and emotive energy to a much wider and whiter audience Inspired by the Beatles adventurous songwriting and his positive experience at the Monterey Pop Festival he wrote The Dock of the Bay while relaxing in Sausalito He recorded it on December 7 1967 three days before the airplane crash that would take his life and four members of his touring band The BarKays The song was unlike anything he had released thus far and showed the promising artistic direction he was headed in Guitarist cowriter and friend Steve Cropper compiled this tribute album around it gathering together some of his past singles along with the unreleased ballad Open The Door There are plenty of great songs such as the magnificent Let Me Come On Home Dont Mess With Cupid and his classic duet with Carla Thomas Tramp The funky HuckleBuck is from the Stax Stay In School record and two fine cuts from earlier albums close out the set As always the backing musicians on all of the tracks are the fantastic Stax players of Booker T & The MGs and the MarKeys by Michael Sean
