KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are back in the Stax Recording Studio, 926 E. McLemore Ave., Memphis, on July 9th or 10th, 1965, for Otis Redding's version of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come", first released on the "Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul" LP on Volt...
"Sam Cooke wrote this song around Christmas 1963 and it was first released by him as a b-side. Cooke said it was unlike any other song he had ever written and may have only performed it once live. Otis Redding recorded his version in the year after Cooke's death and it is one of three Cooke songs on the "Otis Blue" LP.
Otis Redding is my favourite singer of all time and "Otis Blue" the first LP I ever owned, it is without a doubt one of the masterpieces of Soul Music - if you don't own it you should." - KV
