Otis Redding


The definitive biography of The King of Soul.

Otis Redding remains an immortal presence in the canon of American music, writing classic hits as “Try a Little Tenderness,” and “Respect,” a song he wrote and recorded before Aretha Franklin made it her own. Redding made music that has served as the gold standard of 1960s soul. Yet an aura of myth has always surrounded his life, which was tragically cut short at the height of his career by a plane crash in 1967.

In Otis Redding: An Unfinished Life, Jonathan Gould does justice to Redding’s incomparable musical artistry, drawing on exhaustive research, the cooperation of the Redding family, and previously unavailable sources of information to present the first comprehensive portrait of the singer’s background, his upbringing, and his career.
