Cover Smother: Soul That Jumps Right At You

Monday, December 15, 2008

Just pure magic...sure it's not the most visually pleasing design work, but you can just feel the soul oozing just from it's jacket sleeve and it's almost as if the late soul machine, Otis Redding will leap out of that 1968 album sleeve and croon you a tune right in your own room. Yep, it's a powerful and downright soulful picture, in my book...oh, and this is the album that features his classic "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" (if you weren't sure *wink*) which reminds me of last year's summer vacation in San Francisco every time I hear it. As a side note, I prefer "Try A Little Tenderness" and I always tend to dance around like Duckie in Pretty in Pink whenever I hear that song, or any Otis song for that matter.
