The aptly titled 1966 release The Soul Album
is one of the most beloved LPs in Otis Redding's catalogue, and a powerful evocation of this singular soul icon's massive talent and impressive versatility. While such original tunes as "Cigarettes and Coffee," "Good to Me," "Just One More Day" and "Any Ole Way" demonstrate Redding's remarkable songwriting talent, his remarkable interpretive gifts are spotlighted on his deeply compelling versions as Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang," Smokey Robinson's "It's Growing," Roy Head's "Treat Her Right" and the Wilson Pickett/Eddie Floyd hit "634-5789." With gritty, fluid grooves provided by the Stax studio team of Booker T. and the MGs, Isaac Hayes and the Memphis Horns, The Soul Album
captures Otis Redding hitting his musical stride. This exact reproduction of this original Stax label LP is mastered from the original mono tapes and pressed on pristine High-Definition vinyl.
