Otis Redding | This Day In Music

Written by on December 7, 2020

7 Dec 1967, Otis Redding went into the studio to record ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay’. The song went on to be his biggest hit. Redding didn’t see its release; he was killed three days later in a planeSee More crash. Redding wrote the first verse of the song, under the abbreviated title ‘Dock of the Bay’, on a houseboat at Waldo Point in Sausalito, California a short time after his appearance at The Monterey pop festival. Redding’s familiar whistling, heard before the song’s fade was the singer fooling around, he had intended to return to the studio at a later date to add words in place of the whistling. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/stairway-to-heaven/otis-redding/
