Otis Redding - (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay (Official Music Video)

Otis Redding – John Lennon once said if you wanted to give Rock and Roll another name, then you might as well call it Chuck Berry. And based on that, if you wanted to call soul music by any other name it might just as well be Otis Redding.

Right there in those 1960’s we were right there loving everything that Otis did. He was huge on the playlists of the Twisted Wheel and The Jigsaw and Blue Note clubs in Manchester.

Almost all the single releases by Otis were played at the Twisted Wheel (Both locations of the club) OTIS BLUE (LP) tracks were often played and everything that was and a lot that wasn’t played at the Wheel was aired at the Blue Note.
