Otis Redding – Try A Little Tenderness (live in Norway in 1967)

From the beginning of the clip, you get a sense of the energy in the room. This is from the European Stax/Volt tour in 1967, while they were in Norway. This must be the encore from the set – towards the end, Redding walks off stage and comes back on several times at the prodding of the MC and the crowd. He was one of the greatest.

The band is basically Booker T and the MGs plus the Stax horn section, the Mar-Keys. Watching Donald “Duck” Dunn enjoy himself while rockin’ the bass in this clip is well worth the price of admission. Which is free, btw.
