Otis Redding: An Unfinished Life
Jonathan Gould's interview on NPR this morning got me thinking again about Otis. I was lucky enough to see Otis at Monterey Pop and I share Bob Weir's assessment, "I'm pretty sure I just saw God!" As a high school teenager in southern California, my crew listened to Otis' first album and were awestruck. I am reading the book now and I am hopeful that it includes some background on Steve Cropper and Dick Dunn, and the legendary Stax band, much like the Muscle Shoals Swampers.
