otis redding carla thomas king queen

A mix of mid 1990s and recent hits of late 2000s make our list of happy new year songs one of the most desired track list to play this new year’s eve..

Otis Redding , then 26, and Carla Thomas, 25, sing so naturally together on 1967's King & Queen , it's hard to believe it would be their only album together. Inspired by Marvin Gaye 's popular Motown duets, the pair's January 1967 Stax session took less than a week during Carla's holiday break from post-grad English studies at Howard University. With superlative house band Booker T and the .'s, the pair knocked out ten soul standards, from "Knock on Wood" to a particularly poignant "Bring It On Home," and a Redding original, "Ooh Carla, Ooh Otis." The vibe is relaxed, almost festive. Redding's unprocessed soul power and touching asides perfectly balance Carla's sassy grace. Alas, it would be Redding's final recording prior to his fatal October plane crash.

In 1982, Redding's two sons and a nephew formed their own group, the Reddings, and covered "The Dock of the Bay" (Number 55 pop, Number 21 R&B). Little Richard inducted Redding into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. Ten years later the singer received a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys. In 2008 Rolling Stone listed Redding among the top ten greatest singers of all time. The following year a tribute concert in Atlanta featured performances of Redding's songs by sons Dexter and Otis III, as well as a younger generation of R&B and hip-hop artists including Anthony Hamilton, Estelle, and rapper Ludacris.
