30) "The Mid-Morning Recording"              Otis Redding-'Live in Europe'
After getting the Stax/Volt Story on DVD a couple of years ago for Christmas, I've been on a hunt for the recordings from the famed Stax/Volt Revue 1967 Tour of Europe. Earlier this summer I came across the DVD video of the revue in Norway during the tour and was blown away by the sheer amount of talent on one stage. Not only do you have Sam and Dave, Eddie Floyd, Arthur Conley, and the horns of The Mar-Keys, but also add to the mix Booker T. and the MG's and the great Otis Redding. Even though that show is incredible to watch, the sound quality leaves a little more to desire. Which brings me to this gem of an album. I heard this album back sometime in the 90's, and at the time I loved it.....who wouldn't. However, with this new found love for all things Stax and certainly all things Booker T. and the MG's......Having that band with the horns of The Mar-Keys backing Otis Redding - It adds another dimension to the performance completely. Some of these songs are so amazing it can bring tears to ones eyes. The original version of "Respect" is worth the ticket, then you add other Otis classics, and it's almost overwealming how talented Otis and the Stax/Volt family were in the days of this recording. Turns out, there are many recordings from this European tour, but as far as Otis recordings, this may just be his best live recording. Completely recorded in March 1967 at the Paris Olympia Theater. "And I'm gonna give you all my money....all I'm asking is for a little respect when I come home - Hey hey hey!".
