Otis Redding - 40 Years Gone

Otis Redding covers My Girl, the fantastic Temptations song written by Smokey Robinson, wow.

Otis Redding makes Try a little Tenderness his own soulful song, a far cry from Bing Crosby's version.

The music world certainly lost a shining light forty years ago this evening when the plane carrying Otis Redding and his back up band the Bar-Kays crashed into Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin. His biggest hit, (Sittin' on the) Dock of the Bay was recorded on December 7, 1967 and released after his death.
