Considered by many soul connoisseurs to be Otis Redding's finest and most fully realized LP, 1966's Otis Blue delivers a compelling encapsulation of all of the qualities that made Redding the greatest soul performer of his era. In addition to the artist's self-penned classics "Respect" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long," Otis Blue spotlights the artist's peerless interpretive skills, as he puts his dynamic stamp upon such iconic tunes as the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," The Temptations' "My Girl," B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby," "You Don't Miss Your Water" and Solomon Burke's "Down in the Valley." Otis also pays tribute to his idol Sam Cooke, giving his all to a trio of Cooke tunes, "A Change Is Gonna Come," "Shake" and "Wonderful World."
