Was this the best soul music concert ever?

SCAN0023We saw this show at the Palace theatre in Manchester in 1967, before Otis Redding had recorded “Dock of the Bay” – which was the first posthumous record to reach No 1 in the charts.

Booker T and the MGs provided the backing for all the artists and it was truly a night to remember.Otis

Inside this outer wrapper was a programme titled the Otis Redding Show with photographs and biographies of all the artists, starting with Otis Redding.

Then Arthur Conley with his hit “Sweet Soul Music”, Booker T & the MGs famous for “GreenOnions”, Sam and Dave, and finally Eddie Floyd who had a hit with “Knock on Wood” at the time.

Today is the 50th anniversary of the release of Otis’s debut album “Pain in my heart” (which is being re-released in a limited edition).
