The Soul Album’ reminds us of what a prodigious talent the world lost. The Soul Album was Otis Redding’s fourth long-player for Stax’s Volt subsidiary, by which time he had already racked up ten charting singles, including 1965’s Top 10 US R&B hit, the self-written ‘Respect’, which, in 1967, was famously transfigured into a feminist anthem by Aretha Franklin. Though The Soul Album, helmed by Jim Stewart in Stax’s Memphis studio, only yielded a solitary hit (the slow, simmering ballad ‘Just One More Day’, which dented the US R&B Top 20 in December 1965), it was packed with classic Redding performances that showcased not only his raw, primal power but also. He possessed that rare ability to take other people’s songs and transform them so that they seemed like utterances from deep within his own soul.
