Electrifying Concert Footage of the "Big O" at Monterey Pop Festival
15 May 2000 | by Popeye-8See all my reviews

Otis Redding was one of the titanic figures in rock/soul music history...this video should be required viewing for ALL fans of music, if for no other reason but to see what we lost so long ago. Redding took what soul artists were calling "Whitey's Festival" and made it HIS showcase, despite getting the worst spot on the bill. Again, a "must see" for any music history fan.
