Otis Redding - 1967 - A Soupçon of Soul (REPOST)
Various Sources 1967
Otis was truly an electrifying performer with tremendous stage presence and he was/is arguably the greatest male vocalist of all time in the soul/r&b genre.
Also, before anyone asks, the title is not a typo. Soupçon (pronounced sup'son') is a french word meaning "a little bit" or "small amount".

Tracks 1-5: are from the Whisky A Go Go shows recorded April 8 -10, 1966. They appear on the officially released "Good To Me" with different track editing.
Tracks 6-12: are from Otis' appearance on Ready Steady Go! September 16, 1966. "Shake" and "Land of 1000 Dances" feature Eric Burdon (of the Animals) and Chris Farlowe singing with Otis.
Track 13 is from the Oslo, Norway concert recorded April 7, 1967.
Tracks 14-20 may very well be from Stockholm, Sweden. However, if they are, they are from April 6, 1967 and not June 4, 1967. The Stax/Volt Revue was in Europe from mid-March to early April 1967. Additionally, Otis was in Stockholm on April 6, 1967 as verified by the DVD "Dreams To Remember." The dates were likely misinterpreted when they were written as 4/6/67 or 6/4/67 as these can both refer to April 6 depending on which side of the pond you are from.
