    Dock Of The Bay

    Sitting...... There are times that the only remedy is listening to Otis. I don't have those days often, but they do appear. The first day of your monthly is one of them.

    The First Time I Saw A Grown Man Weep!

    And I do mean loud, unseemly weeping was at hearing about the death of Otis Redding while listening to Dock of the Bay over and over and over again....

    Big O

    If all the man had done was write "Respect" and record his version of "Try A Little Tenderness" he'd still be a genius but thankfully he did a lot more than that before dying tragically young. If you've never heard his version of "My Girl" then you're missing out on what the song...
