Down in the Valley (Mono; 2018 Remaster)
Label: Rhino Atlantic
The original 1965 LP Otis Blue was a raw, riveting breakthrough for Redding, helping cement his towering reputation as a soul icon. This exhaustive collector's edition features stereo and mono mixes of the whole LP alongside alternate and live versions of the tunes. True completists are rewarded with a second disc of bonus tracks, including killer material from a 1967 European tour, recorded months before the singer's death.
