AUDIO: Phil Walden on Otis Redding and more (1971)

Charlie Gillett, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1971

It's 1971, and the Allmans are on the rise, Jimmy Carter is in the Governor's Mansion, and Otis is four-years-dead: Capricorn man Phil Walden and pals look back at Otis, the MGs, and discuss race and the South with remarkable frankness.
