#248: Complete and Unbelievable: The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul by Otis Redding

Complete and Unbelievable: The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul by Otis Redding (1966)

Favorite Track(s): "I'm Sick, Y'All" and "Tennessee Waltz" and "Try A Little Tenderness" and "Ton of Joy" and "You're Still My Baby" and "Love Have Mercy"

Thoughts: We've had one Otis album so far, Live in Europe, and I'm really glad we've got this one too.

I remember the first time I heard young Frank Sinatra's version of "Try A Little Tenderness" and I was so disappointed! Nothing can come close to the perfection of Otis's rendition. (Though Frank's is adorable and lovely in its own way.)

Is This Better Then Help!?: Yes.
