Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul (often referred to simply as Otis Blue) is the third studio album by American soul singer Otis Redding. It was first released on September 15, 1965, by Volt Records. The album mainly consists of cover versions of other R&B and soul artists' hits, and, bar one track, was recorded in a 24-hour period over July 9 and 10, 1965, at the Stax Recording Studios in Memphis, Tennessee

The reason for the intermission: The house band - including Booker T. and the MG’s, and the Memphis Horns - had to cut out for local gigs. The haste is evident: In his Dixie - heat treatment of the Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction, Redding sings satis - fashion

Album · 1965 · 40 Songs. On this 1965 album Redding cemented his place as the preeminent soul man, thanks to an impassioned vocal style that could veer from tender to urgent in the space of a verse. Highlights include two of his most enduring originals: I’ve Been Loving You Too Long and the attitude-laden swagger of Respect. Redding utterly transforms The Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction (I Can’t Get No) with his forceful vocals, while his take on Sam Cooke’s civil rights anthem A Change Is Gonna Come is wracked with emotion.
