51. Otis Redding - Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul

Release Date: 1965
Label: Stax

Otis Redding had one of the coolest voices in soul. He's up there with Marvin Gaye when it comes to pure vocal talent, and it would be interesting to hypothesise on how his career would've developed had he not Buddy Holly'd it back in 1967 (days after he'd finished recording his signature song (Sitting On) The Dock of The Bay. There is nothing speciail about the music on this album, but there doesn't need to be.

Rating: 7/10
Favourite Track: A Change is Gonna Come
