This weeks choice was selecteg because of my recent trip to Georgia.
Otis Redding, (born September 9, 1941, Dawson, Georgia, U.S.—died December 10, 1967, near Madison, Wisconsin), American singer-songwriter, one of the great soul stylists of the 1960s.
Redding’s open-throated singing became the measure of the decade’s great soul artists. Unabashedly emotional, he sang with overwhelming power and irresistible sincerity. “Otis wore his heart on his sleeve,” said Jerry Wexler
Ironically, the across-the-board success Redding had sought was realized only after his death. His most-haunting composition, cowritten with Cropper, shot to the top of the charts and became his only number one hit: “(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay” (1968), a bittersweet lament of indolence and love.
Watch the official video for (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay by Otis Redding. The video features video clips and photos of Otis Redding in the prime of his musical career. (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay was released posthumously on Stax Records’ Volt label in 1968 becoming the first posthumous single to be #1 on the charts in the US.

Tää on niin upea klassikko! Aina sykähdyttää kun kuulee 🙂 Ja sopii mainiosti niihin vanhoihin taloihin 🙂
Kiitos, osallistuin edellisellä viikolla, mutta päivän myöhässä. Yritän olla aktiivinen myös teidän musiikin kuuntelussa, mutta nyt on kauhea hässäkkä päällä.
Kiva! Mutta mikä hässäkkä… 😮
Sellaisia perhejuttuja jotka syövät energiaa ..
