Otis Redding - Complete and Unbelievable... The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul (LP)

Rhino celebrates 50 years of this soul classic with an edition featuring mono and stereo mixes of the album, plus rare studio and live recordings!

Otis Redding helped define soul music in 1966 with 'Complete And Unbelievable... The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul.' The album, which peaked at #5 on the U.S. R&B charts, was once praised by critic Jon Landau as: "The finest record ever to come out of Memphis and certainly the best example of modern soul ever recorded."

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this landmark recording, Rhino are releasing a  deluxe edition that includes stereo and mono mixes of the album — remastered from Ian Sefchick's vinyl masters — plus eight rare bonus tracks.

Redding recorded his fifth studio album, 'The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul,' in the summer of 1966 at Stax Studios in Memphis. Together with Booker T. & the M.G.'s, pianist Isaac Hayes and the Memphis Horns, Redding recorded 12 songs for the album, including the all-time classics "Try A Little Tenderness" and "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)."

'The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul' has been expanded on vinyl with eight rare bonus tracks, including several studio outtakes in mono like "Trick Or Treat" and "Loving By The Pound." Also featured is a hair-raising, nearly-seven-minute version of "Try A Little Tenderness" that was recorded live in 1967 during the Stax/Volt Revue's European tour.
 
Sadly, 'The Otis Redding Dictionary Of Soul' was to be the last studio album released during the beloved singer-songwriter's lifetime. Just weeks after its release, Redding lost his life in a plane crash while flying to a show in Wisconsin.
