Recorded in March of 1967, this raw-boned performance ably demonstrated Otis Redding's fiery live persona. Solidly backed by the Memphis Horns and Booker T. & The MG's, Redding's phrasing and excitement rivaled fellow Georgia native James Brown. Equally at home with ballads and uptempo material (much of it self-penned), Redding was also a master interpreter. His facility as a song stylist extended to include everything from Smokey Robinson and Sam Cooke to the rock & roll of the Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Three months after this performance, his Monterey Pop appearance propelled Redding to massive crossover success.
