I think after our last post, we need to take it to the real stuff, the real old school good times, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with the re-issued re-mastered super-duper deluxe collectors edition of Otis Redding’s Otis Blue. It’s a masterpiece, plain and simple. Appreciated by music lovers, more influencing than most artists probably have mentioned… don’t know what else to say.

When it comes to artists like Redding, most of us will have a “best of” floating around and never really dig into the actual releases. No problem, there are some great “best of’s” (Al Green anyone?) out there, but man oh man, this album…. this is one of the one you need to own. Otis just oooozes soul & sweat & blood & tears & makin’ love & passion…. There will only be one Otis, and for me, it’s Otis Blue.

Listen and love…
