After a lot of rockin’ yesterday I thought I’d continue the energy with a bit of Otis.
For me Soul is Stax and it revolves around Otis, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Sam and Dave, and Eddie Floyd. Music straight out of the Southern Baptist churches with passion and fire! I don’t like this soft gooey stuff. We went to places that played Soul to dance and have a good time.
Otis Redding was the King of Soul! Nobody else gets close!! We were robbed of a genius!
Today I’m going to play some Otis Loud and proud! Cos Mama I’m sure hard to handle!
Let’s hope that out of the Black Lives Matter real change is going to come!!
