Just One More Day with Otis


Otis Redding’s 1966 performances at the Whisky A Go Go marked the first soul act on the famous LA stage and a purposeful attempt to widen his audience. They also produced some incredible live recordings that are finally being released this October via Stax Records, on the six-volume Live at the Whisky A Go Go: The Complete Recordings. In celebration of Redding’s birthday this weekend, the artist’s family released one of the tracks from the upcoming set, “Just One More Day.” Listen after the jump.
