Album of the Day
The Definitive Studio Album Collection
Otis Redding's music career took off in 1962 when he signed a contract with Stax Records in Memphis; with the legendary Stax house band Booker T. & the M.G.'s behind him, the singer would reign as one of soul music's greatest until his untimely 1967 death. The new Rhino boxed set THE DEFINITIVE STUDIO ALBUM COLLECTION gives The Big O a package worthy of his rich musical legacy. The vinyl collection brings together all seven of the iconic soul singer's studio albums, each in packaging that meticulously replicates the original, from 1964's PAIN IN MY HEART to 1968's THE DOCK OF THE BAY. The albums are packed with R&B hits: "Mr. Pitiful," "I've Been Loving You Too Long," "These Arms Of Mine," "Respect," "Try A Little Tenderness" and many more. Despite his short career, Redding recorded songs that helped define soul in the Sixties and beyond, and they're all here on THE DEFINITIVE STUDIO ALBUM COLLECTION.
