Hailed as the “Monarch of Soul”, Otis Redding began his career in the early 60’s - a time when soul moved out of the rhythm & blues scene and into the rock ‘n’ roll circuit. Although he had dreamed of a professional singing career, he never believed the dream would become a reality.
 
When a chance trip took him to Memphis however, Redding’s childhood dream was fulfilled. As a chauffeur, he had agreed to drive a group from Macon, Georgia to Memphis for an audition with Stax Records, a rapidly growing rhythm & blues company.
 
It was after one recording that someone suggested he be given a chance to sing. He sang “These Arms of Mine”, which Stax Records recorded and released. It became first a local, and then a national rhythm & blues hit. In 1965 Redding recorded such major hits as “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and “Respect.”
 
Ironically, his best known song, and only number one pop hit, was released after his death in 1967. A soul ballad, “(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay” had been recorded three days before his plane crashed into a lake near Madison, Wisconsin enroute to an engagement. Released in 1968, it reached the charts in one month and stayed there for almost a year.
