It's cool to juxtapose the London and Paris versions. Amazing energy! What a singer! What a band! Lord have mercy!

Essential Otis

squeegeetee

If they released a live album by Otis with 15 performances of the same song, I'd probably download it. He brought a spark to every performance.

Essential! Exciting!

This just reinforces what an awesome talent we lost when Otis Redding died. The excitement and emotion that bursts out from the speakers makes you wish you'd been there - it tugs at your feet and your soul. Even though I have slightly different versions of these tracks on other live albums and CD's he brings something fresh and new to them on this compilation. With Booker T and the MG's and the Mar-Keys blazing away behind Otis, I agree that this is one of the most essentiaql downloads on e-music.

Otis or soul fans, get this now

FLBluesFan

Download this now. This is easily one of the best things on eMusic. Otis sings his heart out on every cut. Some of this suspiciously sounds like cuts from the classic album "Live In Europe", but even so it is some of the best live performances ever. I like that there are alternating versions of several songs here, it's a nice side-by-side listen.

Astonishing

wolverinefan

One of the things I am most grateful to emusic for is letting me really get to know what an amazing performer Otis Redding was. I've already downloaded one live set, but this one blows it away. What an amazing voice and an amazing showman. He definitely made James earn that "Hardest Working Man in Show Business" title. Hearing Redding rip through "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is revelatory....I know this sounds like blasphemy, but man, he almost tops Mick and the boys, I swear. Apples and oranges, I guess, and both taste great. Download this now if you love rock, soul, or, simply, good music.

Who Is…Michael Kiwanuka

By Christina Lee, Contributor

Before Michael Kiwanuka topped BBC's Sound of 2012 poll and earned himself a thousand comparisons to Bill Withers, the singer-songwriter wanted to sound like Jimi Hendrix or The Band. He pined for a Fender Stratocaster, instrument of choice for both Hendrix and Robbie Robertson. However, things don't always work out the way you plan them, and Kiwanuka ended up reaping the lion's share of attention for an instrument he already had: his rounded, worn voice,… more »

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

Six Degrees of Dusty Springfield’s Dusty in Memphis

By Andria Lisle, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

When the Love Generation (which, truthfully, did no better with that emotion than any other generation) got its first real glimpse of soul giant Otis Redding at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 backed by Booker T. & the MG’s, a powerhouse band if there ever were one, they saw love with a capital L, because Redding sang love songs like the world was about to end, wringing the emotion out of them like a soulful, urgent hurricane. He was, simply put, an unstoppable force on-stage, taking all the energy of gospel and upping the ante until it seemed like the very sky itself was about to fly off into space from the very power of it. Redding was soul, and soul in every fiber of his being. The two sets included here, which predate the Monterey performance by a couple of months, were recorded in London (March 17) and Paris (March 21) on the Stax/Volt package tour of Europe in 1967, and they just might be even more astounding (particularly the Paris night) than the Monterey set. Working again with the MG’s, with the horns of the Mar-Keys along for extra kick, Redding burns the house down in both of these sets, wringing every last bit of energy out of Sam Cooke’s “Shake” until it seems the universe is about to come off its hinges, turning “Try a Little Tenderness” into a silken caress, making “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” into an anthem for the hopeless arc of love, and taking “Day Tripper” to places the Beatles could only dream about, all with the MG’s and the Mar-Keys churning behind him like a huge, funky turbine. This was Stax soul in all its ragged, vital glory. The original tapes of these sets (Atlantic issued an LP of the London show in 1967) have been reassembled and restored for this release, and the end result is a stunning reminder of what a giant Redding was. You want to know about love? Drop this in your player. – Steve Leggett
