"(Sittin' On The) Dock Of The Bay" by Otis Redding ruled the charts in March-April 1968 for four weeks and becoming the #4 single for 1968.
While "Dock Of The Bay" is Redding's signature song, he had many other hits. He wrote and recorded the original version of "Respect" in 1965, two years before Aretha Franklin made it a #1 pop classic…
His "I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)" gets considerable airplay among classic hits stations. Redding had 19 chart hits when he was alive and another 11 after he perished. His hits included a stirring live rendition of "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" from late 1969 and early 1970...
Redding's last of 30 pop chart hits, "Love Man," made the soundtrack of "Dirty Dancing.”
