Redding Wrap-Up: An All-Star Rendition of Otis’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”
As of this writing, we’re less than two weeks away from the end of 2018, and this means we’ve reached the end of a year’s worth of honoring the legacy of the late Otis Redding, including…
- An Otis Redding tribute show at the Apollo Theater
- A limited-edition gold vinyl 7” re-release of “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”
- THE DOCK OF THE BAY SESSIONS
- Various items of special, limited-edition 50th anniversary merchandise
There’s one final item for your listening – and viewing – enjoyment, however, and that’s this all-star rendition of Redding’s signature song, which features Jack Johnson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Aloe Blacc, Dexter and Otis Redding III, James Gadson, Louis Mhlanga, the students from the Otis Redding Foundation Music Camp, Claire Finley, Irie Love, Mar Sanchez, and the Rass Brass Extension.
Here’s the video:
The musical collaboration was the result of another collaboration, one between Princess Cruises, Playing For Change, and the Estate of Otis Redding. Give it a watch, give it a listen, and give thanks that, although Otis Redding died far too song, he left as much amazing music as he did.
