Otis Redding: Southern-Fried Soul
Otis Redding
Writer Jon Landau said, "Wilson Pickett had style and James Brown had sex. But Otis Redding had soul. He was truly the king of them all." Otis Redding's short but exceptional career defined the sound at soul music's top record label, Stax, in the 1960s, and his unique style of soulful writing, singing and performing won him fans the world over. He was just on the verge of a major crossover into the world of American pop music when his life was cut short by a tragic plane crash in 1967.
