Live in Europe

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Live in Europe was the first full-length concert album released on Otis Redding, and the last LP of his work that he lived to see issued. Recorded along the Stax/Volt tour of Europe in March of 1967, it featured Redding backed by Booker T. & the MG's. Their playing, along with that of Wayne Jackson trumpet and Andrew Love and Joe Arnold tenor saxes, is more elegant and elegantly articulated than the work of his usual touring band, and this album is a sort of idealized Otis Redding concert.

Live in Europe was the first full-length concert album released on Otis Redding, and the last LP of his work that he lived to see issued. Recorded along the Stax/Volt tour of Europe in March of 1967, it featured Redding backed by Booker T. & the MG's. Their playing, along with that of Wayne Jackson trumpet and Andrew Love and Joe Arnold tenor saxes, is more elegant and elegantly articulated than the work of his usual touring band, and this album is a sort of idealized Otis Redding concert. Some of it lacks the raw excitement of Live at the Whisky a Go Go which was recorded a year earlier than the shows where this album was cut, but not issued until a year later, but in compensation one gets all of the virtuoso flourishes and details that one would expect from this ensemble. The audience, ecstatic at the rare chance to see the soul idol in concert, is very vocal in their enthusiasm for the singer and his songs, and "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Sad Song" is practically a singalong number with some finely detailed playing from Booker T. Jones, Steve Cropper, and Al Jackson, Jr., who, with Wayne Jackson and company, also add some exquisite grace notes to the finale, "Try a Little Tenderness." Beyond the musical power of his performance, Redding's emotions are practically overflowing as he addresses the crowd in a very personal manner as he introduces "These Arms of Mine." The only flaw in this recording, if there is one, is that it does have only ten songs, but that was the nature of the shows on this tour.

    A Faithful Reissue

    A perfect representation of the best live soul act of the 60s. The digital remastering retains the all the crowd noise and the wide separation from the days when stereo was in its infancy. The bass line on "Respect" alone is worth the price of this disc.

    live music fans...

    cant pass up this album. Called the best live album ever in the mid-80's by Rolloing Stone magazine, this is an essential for both fans of Motown, Soul and live performance music.
