Incredible!
10 August 1999 | by (tulsa oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This movie (available on video) is the complete set of songs sung by Otis Redding at the Monterey Pop International Festival in 1967. Tom Smothers introduces Redding in an offhand manner, and the crowd starts to file down the aisles, leaving so they can make the curfew. Then Otis jumps on the stage, singing the chorus to "Shake" and bringing the house down! Then he goes on to sing a song he originally wrote, "Respect" which is just a chorus repeated over and over again, but oh what he does with that chorus!! Then Redding slows it down for the 'love crowd' with "I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)" agonizing over a love lost. The tempo is brought up again with an amazing version of "Satisfaction" that supposedly brought tears to Brian Jones' eyes. The last song is "Try a Little Tenderness" and while I know it is nice to have montages of the different kinds of people that went to the concert, I would have liked it much better if the camera stayed on Redding. At the end of the set, after singing another chorus, Redding says "I gotta go, I don't want to go." By then, you don't want him to go, either. Six months after this was filmed, Otis Redding was dead. We have this film to remember and rediscover.
