OTIS: SOUL IN A BOX
11/19/15

Do we need to reiterate the importance of Otis Redding to the history of pop in general and soul music in particular? That voice, gritty and sweet, is an indispensable item on the listening menu for now and forever. Rhino's Soul Manifesto: 1964-1970 box compiles 12 brilliant albums, eight studio sets and four live collections, spanning his career and then some (four of the albums herein are posthumous releases). The most noteworthy benchmark from a record-history standpoint is the 50th anniversary of Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul; that dazzling set includes "Respect," "I've Been Loving You Too Long," "Shake," "Satisfaction" and "You Don't Miss Your Water," among others. So you know, no big deal. That's just one disc in this comprehensive set; put 'em all in your changer, light a fatty and feel it in your bones.
