Album Review

This two-fer collection combines Otis Redding's 1966 LP The Soul Album with his posthumous The Dock of the Bay album from 1968, and since anything Redding sang is going to sound like deep soul ought to sound, they work just fine together as a set. Included are some of Redding's finest studio performances, including the brilliant "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay," the emotionally perfect "I Love You More Than Words Can Say," and his amazing restructuring of Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang."
