King of Soul
Half a century ago, a stunning new voice arrived via Otis’s first LP, "Pain in My Heart." The Stax sound was born, soul had its king—and then it was all cruelly taken away just four years later. This set underscores how much Otis gave us during that time—as a singer, performer, songwriter and song interpreter. You get his Volt/Atco hits "(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay," "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)," "The Happy Song (Dum-Dum)," "Try a Little Tenderness," "My Lover’s Prayer," "Satisfaction," "Mr. Pitiful," "Pain in My Heart," "These Arms of Mine," "I’ve Got Dreams to Remember," "Tramp" (with Carla Thomas) and more. You’ll hear him live at the Whiskey A Go Go in L.A ("Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag," "Just One More Day") and on tour in Europe ("My Girl," "Shake"). You’ll hear his soul-shaking spins on "Down in the Valley," "You Don’t Miss Your Water," "My Girl"…a detailed 92-track portrait of an American treasure. Atco.
