Song: Try a little tenderness
Artist: Otis Redding

The king of soul! This video is from one of his most famous concerts: Monterey Festival, the pre-nup to Woodstock. It's his breakthrough to the  "white" audience, since Monterey wasn't a soul music based festival, but more folk-music.

Otis Redding should have gotten more songs on my list, and I feel slightly ashamed for only putting this song on it, because he is my favourite soul singer. I wonder if they ever had to put him on oxygen after his performances, because MAN. Did that man give his all when he sang! Died far too young, of course. Should have lived a hundred years.
