Otis Redding's live performances are legendary for their raw, sweat-soaked intensity. For those of us not fortunate enough to have seen the legendary soul icon on stage, this is the next best thing. Recorded in April 1966 at Los Angeles' Whisky A Go Go, this is the only live recording of Otis in a small club setting, and it's a scorcher, capturing the spellbinding fervor that he generated on a nightly basis. Backed by his raw-and-ready touring band, Redding delivers a fiery set that includes many of his best-loved tunes, including "I Can't Turn You Loose," "Mr. Pitiful," "These Arms of Mine" and the climactic show-stopper "Respect," along with his soul-shaking takes on the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and James Brown's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag." This exact reproduction of this original Stax label LP is mastered from the original stereo tapes and pressed on pristine High-Definition vinyl.
