Otis Redding

Pain in My Heart (Atco)

Otis Redding is at the top when it comes to my favorite album of all time, Pain In My Heart. There is no one who is here or has passed through here that could out-sing him. When I listen to his begging songs like “That’s What My Heart Need,” “Pain In My Heart,” “You Send Me” and “These Arms Of Mine,” I literally cry crocodile tears.

Otis never made a bad record. He is the greatest and will be in the hearts  and ears  of music lovers for decades to come.

Swamp Dogg’s Sorry You Couldn’t Make It album is out now, and he’s just released this video for “Sleeping Without You is a Dragg.”
