The immortal Otis Redding this week, recorded in concert at an unidentified venue (I’m thinking Baltimore? – call for clarification from readers please!) on October 4, 1966.

I forgot how turbo-charged Redding was in performance. This concert (actually two half-hour sets with an intermission in between) rocks almost continuously for over an hour.

It’s a tribute to the talent and raw energy this man had, and just what it sounds like for an artist to throw themselves into their work.

Redding was an astonishing performer, above his remarkable gift as an artist and writer. He really was an institution.

And here is an hour’s worth of why.

The sound is a bit rough, but hopefully it’s been smoothed out from some magical surgery I spent a few hours performing. It’s a frantic 71 minutes though.

Enjoy the show.

    I believe it was in California. Because he speaks of California in the beginning.
