Your (Almost) Daily Playlist: 9-9-23

The first session of the recording of “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” took place on November 22, 1967. A second session took place on December 7 of that year. The distinctive whistling at the end of the record was improvised by Otis Redding during recording, serving as a placeholder for a planned third verse that he never got to write before his passing in a plane crash on December 10.

The late great Otis Redding was born on this date in 1941. Lotsa Otis on today’s playlist.
