Soul Manifesto 1964-1970
Take an in-depth dive into one of the most brief yet dazzlingly profound careers in popular music via this 12-CD collection, which includes Otis’s eight studio and live albums plus four posthumous albums. Otis forever changed the musical landscape with classics like "Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay" (the first posthumous #1 hit in U.S. history); "Satisfaction" (the Stones would later adopt Otis’s rendition of the Jagger/Richards song as their own); 1965’s "Respect" (the song that put Aretha on the map); "Try a Little Tenderness" (arranged by Isaac Hayes); "Tramp," "Shake," "Security," "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)," "I Can't Turn You Loose," "Mr. Pitiful," "Chained And Bound," and many others. This set includes releases from his debut album "Pain in My Heart" (1964) to his swan song, "The Dock of the Bay" (1968; this recording concluded just three days before his death) to albums released thereafter. A must-have for any student or appreciator of Southern soul! Atlantic.
