Background: Released in late 1967, Live in Europe was the first live album by Otis Redding.
The album reached #32 on the U.S. album chart and #14 on the UK chart.
Live in Europe was the first full-length concert album released on Otis Redding, and the last LP of his work that he lived to see issued. Recorded along the Stax/Volt tour of Europe in March of 1967, it featured Redding backed by Booker T. & the MG’s. Their playing, along with that of Wayne Jackson (trumpet) and Andrew Love and Joe Arnold (tenor saxes), is more elegant and elegantly articulated than the work of his usual touring band, and this album is a sort of idealized Otis Redding concert. …The only flaw in this recording, if there is one, is that it does have only ten songs, but that was the nature of the shows on this tour.
