Somebody Likes It Ep 97: Otis Redding – “Otis Redding Sings Soul”

Otis. In addition to being one of those artists that one can cite by first-name only, he can be included in the great pantheon of those that nobody doesn’t like. Possessing arguably the best voice of his generation (if not claiming the mantle “voice of his generation”), Otis Redding, tragically, left us way too soon.

Somehow, however, I had managed to never listen to an entire Otis Redding record from start to finish. Ladies and gentlemen, I have rectified this egregious oversight.

Tune in to this week’s episode where we discuss, among other things, small planes, bumper stickers, an iconic song that got flipped on its head, and an, um “extemporaneous” Stones cover.

Oh, and the worst Neil Diamond song ever makes an appearance. So, there’s that. Which still gives me a broad smile.
