About

In 1967, Otis Redding is a king who even managed to sneak onto the stage of the pop festival of Monterey. Back in Memphis, he thinks about new directions for his next disc. The rest is as legendary as it is tragic: he dies in a plane crash on December 10, 1967 at only 26… Even if only Otis knew what this “new album” would sound like, Dock Of The Bay Sessions tries to answer this question. Conceived with Roger Armstrong from the label Ace Records and with Jonathan Gould, the singer’s biographer, it doesn’t offer any new title (every track present here had been already released on a posthumous album or on a compilation), but rather an original track list. It shows a new Otis Redding. The one who impressed the European crowds with his atomic concerts and got himself a new American audience thanks to the Monterey episode. We hear all of this on the stripped-down funk of Hard To Handle, as can be felt Bob Dylan’s influence—whose music was loved by Redding—in Gone Again’s superb lyricism. His cover of the hit Amen from the Impressions also shows us that he was far from having abandoned his gospel roots. Otis Redding also doesn’t forget to make his audience dance like on the powerful Love Man carried by the striking drums of Al Jackson and a 100% Memphis fiery brass section. Finally, he reminds us that he can also be a God of ballads on I’ve Got Dreams To Remember, with its lyrics adapting a poem from his wife Zelma. As for the hit (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay which opens the ball, everyone knows it was his final song recorded before his death. Released in January 1968, the single reaches the first place in the charts on March 16, sells more than four million copies and will be the first posthumous album of an artist to reach this position… © Max Dembo/Qobuz
