Released:
Label: Rhino Atlantic
The mythology surrounding Redding's prowess as a stage performer is for the most part based on his appearance in the concert film Monterey Pop and the Live in Europe album. Yet neither is representative of the soul legend's typical live show in the mid-'60s. This is why In Person at the Whisky A Go Go is such a vital document. Rather than Booker T. & the MG's, Redding is backed by his own band, with whom he possessed a unique chemistry. The balladry is, of course, heart-wrenching. But the high point just might be the ferocious rendition of "Satisfaction." The Stones surely loved it.
