Nina Simone and Otis Redding in 1967, the year he died.
TONIGHT: "Otis Redding: An Unfinished Life" with musician/biographer Jonathan Gould 7pm at #RevolutionBooks "The astonishment of Otis Redding’s career cannot be grasped without a full sense of the ingrained, fear-driven, stifling forces intended to prevent such an emergence from ever happening. Gould takes time therefore to track the family as closely as possible, from well before Otis’s birth, as the widowed Laura and her three sons, three daughters, and four grandchildren move about Georgia in response to changing economic conditions, finding themselves by 1930 in 'a three-room cabin on a stretch of unpaved highway' in a corner of Terrell County (later known to civil rights workers, we are told, as 'Terrible Terrell')." -- from review of Jonathan Gould's "Otis Redding: An Unfinished Life" by Geoffrey O'Brien, New York Review of Books
