American singer, songwriter and record producer, Otis Redding is known for his powerful and emotional talents and is considered one of the greatest artist in American Soul and Rythym and Blues music. Quitting school at 15 to support his family Otis worked with Little Richard's backing band 'the Upsetters'. Redding was then later to befriend guitarist Johnny Jenkin's and join his band 'the Pinetoppers' as well as chasing his solo career. In 1965, Otis recorded his album 'Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul' in one day. On December 6, 1967 Redding recorded '(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay' which hit No. 1 on the Pop and R&B charts for the following year, but Redding did not live to see his success as he passed in a plane crash only four days after the recording.
