Otis Redding, YouTube

14 November 1966, Otis Redding with “Try A Little Tenderness” just barely sneaks into a peak position on the charts,however; his real breakthrough coming up…

His real breakthrough was discovered from a pop standard so established that Jack Webb (yea Sgt Joe Friday, Dragnet) had already covered the song in 1958.

The big inspiration came from drummer Al Jackson ( founder of Booker T and The MG’s)and his double time high-hat, yet Otis did a transformation of the sentimental tune into a call for romantic devotion. After that it spiraled into a frenzy only a fade could contain.

Otis Redding, “Try A Little Tenderness” recorded September 1966, Memphis, TN:
