Label: ATCO Records - 9548380872 • Format: 2x, CD Compilation • Country: Europe • Genre: Funk / Soul • Style: Soul
The Very Best of Otis Redding wasn't the first Otis Redding compilation but it is Naked - Mirabilia - Mondomirabilia Twelve Songs About Space best of the single-disc collections, distilling the high points across his career up thru the posthumous hits " Sitting' On The Dock of the Bay" and the heartbreaking "I've Got Dreams to Remember" in 16 tracks, every one a musical milestone and a soul music high-point of one kind or another.
Although aimed at the casual listener and the neophyte fan, there are some astonishing realizations to be had in listening to this disc and looking at the chart placements of the early sides, and realizing just how uniform his musical influence is -- "These Arms of Mine" and, especially, "Pain In My Heart," from andrespectively, sold only a fraction of what his later singles did, yet they've been covered by so many artists since, that they're as familiar as any of the other, bigger hits on this disc.
The collection is hardly comprehensive, but all of the major bases are touched, right down to his hit duet "Tramp" with Carla Thomas.
The other advantage, especially for those on a budget, is that this was the first Otis Redding compilation to avail itself of the improved master tape research and analog-to-digital technology of the early '90s.
