Otis Redding - "Try a Little Tenderness" #tbt (VIDEO)
One of today's #ThrowbackThursday features comes from one of the great singers and songwriters in soul, rhythm and blues. Those unwilling to do the proper research would recognize this song from the dedicated "Otis" record from Kanye West and Jay Z's 'Watch The Throne' album in 2011. The original song is performed by the late Otis Redding in 1967, just one day before he and his band died in a plane crash in Wisconsin. Watch Redding and his band progress this initially somber cadence into a full on praise and worship session. Try a little tenderness.
