(Otis Redding – These Arms Of Mine)

time for a slice of Otis…unquestionably one of the finest singers of the Soul genre, (or any other come to that), loved and respected by all the musicians and producers who had the good fortune to work with the man. this one is taken from his first album, (although this cut was recorded and released initially as a Volt 45 in 1962), Pain In My Heart.

Recorded at ‘Soulsville U.S.A’, lyrics by the man himself, produced and probably engineered by Label owner Jim Stewart, (maybe even Steve Cropper?). players of instruments the magnificent Booker T & the MG’s: Steve Cropper, Booker T. Jones, Al Jackson and Lewie Steinberg.

  1. This reminds me of the new Criss Angel collaboration with Cirque Du Soleil entitled “Believe” I got to see some of the behind the scenes footage at youtube.com/cirquelasvegas and was quite impressed. Has anyone else seen it or plan to see it? One of my co workers saw it and had nothing but great things to say about it.

  2. haven’t seen it and to be honest don’t plan to. Although I have also heard that ‘Cirque’ is well worth a visit.
