About this copy: This copy of The Immortal Otis Redding is a 1968 Japanese pressing on the Atlantic label.

This LP was issued without an insert.

The disc is VG++ with a couple of light marks.  There are many spindle marks and a bit of foxing on the labels, but the disc is quite clean.

A nice copy of an album that’s hard to find as a first pressing.

The album reached #58 on the U.S. album chart.

Allmusic.com gave The Immortal Otis Redding a 3 1/2 star review:

After the career of Otis Redding was cut tragically short in December of 1967, the tape vaults were plundered on several occasions to present fans with new product. The Immortal Otis Redding (1968) was the second posthumous long-player created from the artist’s backlog of material. …On the whole, it can be argued that The Immortal Otis Redding wasn’t quite on par with the half-dozen studio albums that the vocalist cut during his lifetime. By the same token, it should be acknowledged that any Otis Redding recordings should be considered welcome (if not mandatory) additions to all manner of listeners.
