Otis Redding could famously take a deceptively simple idea (like his signature tune here, “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay”) and turn it into a world-stopping meditation on loneliness and yearning. It’d sting, because Redding’s gritty voice was that real, that persuasive, that untouchable. Released posthumously in 1968 (pieces were recorded just days before his late-1967 death), Redding’s sixth album is jammed with his patented whiplash soul and wicked R&B sassafras. “Let Me Come on Home” features the raunchiest Steve Cropper guitar playing ever recorded, and the slinky classics “Tramp” (with Carla Thomas) and “Don’t Mess with Cupid” all defined a heavy black sound that later echoed in anything resonating rock ’n’ roll and soul, from Rod Stewart to The Allman Brothers to Free to The Black Crowes and so on. As with most Redding albums, you hear and feel every nuance: sweat drips from “The Huckle-Buck,” ache fills the room on “The Glory of Love,” and tears drop on the Jimmy Cox blues standard “Nobody Knows You (When You’re Down and Out).” The whole album is an absolute essential.
