#Throwback: Otis Redding ‘Try A Little Tenderness’ [Last Live Performance]

21 Jul

In the spirit of Jay and Yeezy releasing ‘Otis’ I thought I’d showcase the man behind the sample. Otis Redding was a true definition of real soulful R&B. Tragically his life was cut short as the result of a plan crash at the age of 26. Below is his last live performance of “TryA Little Tenderness” which he performed the day before he died. His voice was chilly and soul stirring.

Enjoy what greatness used to sound like in music..
