Inspirations for the Martin Smith Band #9 : Soul legend Otis Redding

My series of homage posts to the artists who have inspired me and the rest of the band continues.    The subject of this post,  the force of nature that was Otis Redding, was (and still is) “soul” personified.   This video clip is particularly poignant as it comes from a TV broadcast made the day before he died.
