  • Compiled in the wake of Otis Redding's premature death, THE DOCK OF THE BAY is a suitable testimony to a gigantic performer. The melancholic title track suggested a new musical blueprint, and elements of the previously unissued "Open The Door" show a similarly muted perspective. Tracks culled from OTIS BLUE and THE SOUL ALBUM sit beside the playful "Tramp," which represents the singer's brief partnership with Carla Thomas. The remaining material is drawn from various sources, including flip-sides and compilations and, taken as a whole, the album provides a precis of Redding's past, as well as intimating what was so sadly lost.

Otis Redding has a desperate, uging and passionate soul voice that gives the songs he records added impact. The tight, bouncing rhythm and horn sections provide the perfect backdrop. The title track is unbelievably good and regularly features in 'Best Of' lists. Some hidden gems also along with the classic duet Tramp.
