Otis Redding – Try A Little Tenderness
“Try a Little Tenderness” is a love song written by “Irving King” and Harry M. Woods, and recorded initially on December 8, 1932 by the Ray Noble Orchestra (with vocals by Val Rosing). Otis Redding’s live version from the amazing album Live in London & Paris starts off with a great soulful melody and then transitions into an upbeat groove backed by a fearless horn section. I put this entire album in the Daily Song Fix Store (see the tab – Listen and Shop!) because it really is an amazing album. Props to Joe @ Chowabunga for the song suggestion.
Update: The Live in Paris version stopped working so I embedded a different one below, still great!
