Barcode and Other Identifiers
Recorded in 1966, Otis Redding's In Person At The Whisky A Go Go is his best live album, beating out Live in Europe, and is one of the best and most energetic live albums ever made. The album kicks off with the great I Can't Turn You Loose followed by Pain In My Heart, from Redding's first album.
This is followed by the soulful plea of Just One More Day and a great version of his earlier hit Mr. Pitiful. The recording of Satisfaction on here is even better then the version on Otis Blue, and easily rivals the Stone's version. This is followed by three great soul songs, I'm Depending On You, Any Ole Way and the great ballad These Arms of Mine. Reddin then goes into a kickin' version of James Brown's Papa's Got A Brand New Bag, which at least as good as the original.
The album closes with the classic Respect. This is just a tour de force performance and you can feel the energy coming off of it. This prooves just how great of a voice Otis Redding had and just how soulful he was. This is an essential album in Otis Redding's catalog and in the history of Soul and R&B.
Otis Redding - I Can't Turn You Loose
Otis Redding - Satisfaction
Folks Sam Cooke started it all, James Brown nursed it a bit, Wilson Pickett to it to a higher leverl, Aretha made it hers, but Otis owned it. Man could that soul man sing the blues and rock the house, talk about ripping the roof off the house he's the first man to do just that.
I feel sick thats I'm only now discovering this excellent cover!
