Happy Birthday Otis!

Today is Otis Redding’s 78th birthday. There has never been a more powerful voice since Otis in my opinion. Every track he sings is timeless and either makes you wanna Shout Bamalama or shed a tear. Maybe try some tenderness?

My band in high school used to cover this song. Our old family dog, Mercy, was also named after an Otis song, so you get the idea.
