Otis Redding – Live At The Whisky A Go Go: The Complete Recordings is due on October 21 through STAX / UMC.
The comprehensive six-disc set collects in chronological order Redding’s seven sets recorded between Friday, April 8 – Sunday, April 10, 1966.
Redding’s sets included “Respect”, “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” alongside his version of The Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and covers of The Beatles‘ “A Hard Day’s Night” and James Brown‘s “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag”.
We’re delighted to be able to offer you a taster of the set, in the shape of this exclusive, never-before-released live version of “Any Ole Way“, taken from Redding’s second set on Saturday, April 9.
The box set features newly remixed and remastered recordings from all the April 1966 concerts. Although some of the performances had previously appeared on the 1968 album, In Person At The Whisky A Go Go, the new collection includes previously unreleased tracks and all of Redding’s between song banter.
