Otis' Ambition Was To Replace Sam Cooke...
Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 13 April 1968
ABOUT THREE years ago I wrote a feature on Otis Redding as part of a series called "Great Unknowns". It was based on four records and some information on Otis which had then been issued. The records were 'Pain In My Heart', 'Come To Me' and 'Mr. Pitiful' on the London label and 'Shout Bamalama' on the Sue label.
