Otis – truly a son of the south with Georgia red clay dirt in his bones, in his bones. Thanks for giving us a taste of Otis’ essence. The man is tough and unbelievably tender – at the same time.

The Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon had a world class exhibit on Otis last year. I’m not sure if it is still up – they are struggling financially and may have to close soon. But if you’re in the metro ATL area, it is worth a trip down the road in Macon to visit the Hall of Fame – one GA institution that gives appropriate credit to the black and white roots of Georgia culture. And while you’re down there, stop by the Harriet Tubman museum and the Douglass Theatre.

Thank you, thank you … ! This is music heaven to me. The only thing I miss from this list is “Respect.”

Thanks for this. This gives me an appreciation for my…uhm…parents music. LOL! I remember hearing these songs in the house. Good music. Future generations have a lot to learn when it comes to soul. Anthony Hamilton at his best even pales in comparison. This isn’t a dig, but shows the force that soul that can be felt in this music.

I liked all of the tracks. ‘Announcement’ threw me off a bit.
