The album reached #82 on the U.S. album chart.
This album, released posthumously, captured Otis Redding’s show at the Whisky A Go Go from April of 1966 in Los Angeles. What is essential here was that it captured Otis Redding’s sound in a small club with his own touring band, as opposed to his work on stage with Booker T. & the MG’s — an ideal band, to be sure, which is why they were sent over to Europe with him and why they were at Monterey with him a year later, but not the group that Redding normally worked on stage with. This album is closer to how Otis Redding sounded in the years coming up and working his way to the top, and the way that his original audience on the chitlin’ circuit heard him…. The set itself lasts less than 40 minutes but the singer and his band are so energetic, that it doesn’t feel short or lacking. This album was, in more ways than one, Redding’s equivalent to Sam Cooke’s Live At The Harlem Square Club, and just as essential.
