(conqueroo) Otis Redding was at the peak of his stardom in March, 1967 when he crossed the Atlantic to perform for his growing European fan base. As part of the traveling Stax/Volt Revue that is credited with spreading the sound of Memphis across the world, Redding played two exemplary shows in London and Paris. These performances have been combined to form the 19-song Otis Redding — Live in London and Paris, set for release September 23, 2008 on the reactivated Stax Records through Concord Music Group.

Read all about it here.

I am looking forward to these sets. Otis was such a dynamic live performer who we truly miss.
