Side 1 of this album is just so perfect, a real slow burner with great, great songs. The bass really pins the tracks whilst the brass punctuates and then on top of that you have Otis's amazing voice. Change is Gonna Come is my pick here but so many other great songs including Respect and My Girl which is just one of the most perfect pop songs ever recorded.

Otis mostrava o outro lado do soul, mais político e triste.

Aretha permettendo ( ma sono sicuro che permetterebbe… ), Otis Redding è il paradigma del Soul e questo album è la quintessenza di Otis Redding. Che interpreti brani suoi divenuti classici assoluti ( "Respect" o "I've been loving you too long" ) o di Sam Cooke ( questa versione di "A change is gonna come" dona l'eterno riposo al suo autore ), che canti brani ritmati o lenti Redding ( con Steve Cropper e Donald "Duck" Dunn, va detto… ) impone il suo marchio. Pure una "Satisfaction" ( forzato omaggio a questi nuovi puzzoni inglesi ), uscita da pochi mesi, riesce a fare sua !

This is the one that finally made me 'get' Soul. 'I've Been Loving You Too Long' is a masterpiece

Pretty solid. Would love a stereo version of this. Redding brings it every single track.

Listening to the world-weariness of Otis Redding's voice on these recordings, it's hard to believe he was only 24 years old when he pulled together some of the world's greatest soul musicians to make this incredible album. "Ole Man Trouble" is one of Redding's most introspective compositions, and showcases not only his vocal abilities, but also his emotional range as a songwriter.

One of the great soul albums. Otis blue, is a superb collection of originals and classic covers. Every song is excellent, especially, I've been loving you too long, my girl, and, satisfaction. Redding's breathless vocals and performances are still as exciting today as they ever were. Classic soul music.

100 per cent pure soul music. A voice to match Aretha has to be up there with the very best vocalists of all time, taken too soon. This is his best album Ole Man Trouble, A Change Is Gonna Come, Respect I've Been Lovin You Too Long etc. & some great musicians a must for all soul fans.

Soul 101 right here. A true mark of a great album is when it is actually better than a greatest hits compilation by the same artist. That is definitely true here. The versions of Wonderful world, Satisfaction and My girl here are just incredible.

There's no question about it: your soul collection isn't complete without some Otis Redding in it.
