One of Reddings most famous songs, this was recorded shortly before he and most of his band were killed in a plane crash. The song was then released later in 1968, where it had great success and won awards. Dock of the Bay is, indeed, a mixed bag of singles and B-sides going back to July of 1965, one hit duet with Carla Thomas, and two, previously unissued tracks from 1966 and 1967. There's little cohesion, stylistic or otherwise, in the songs, especially when the title track is taken into consideration - nothing else here resembles it, for the obvious reason that Redding never had a chance to follow it up. Despite the mix-and-match nature of the album, however, this is an impossible record not to love. Otis Redding wrote the first verse of the song, under the abbreviated title Dock of the Bay, on his promoter Bill Graham's rented houseboat at Waldo Point in Sausalito, California in August 1967. Many songs by Otis Redding were co-written was guitarist Steve Cropper. This song wasn't an exception. The song's two co-writers exchanged ideas while playing the song. Steve Cropper was at the studio when Otis Redding called his from the Memphis airport. Usually, when Otis came to town, he checked into the Holiday Inn before calling Steve, but this time he couldn&apos. The Beatles album got Redding thinking. He had always relied on the emotion and energy in his vocals to carry his songs, but now he started paying more mind to the words themselves hed also recorded most of his songs live in the studio, but the complex layering achieved by the Beatles and George Martin clued him in to other ways of building tracks. So, on Tuesday morning at 7:30 a. he entered the studio, devoting the next 24 hours to finishing Dock of the Bay. One of the hardest things I ever had to do was mix that song, says Cropper. There was no time for background vocals but Cropper knew the song really needed something. Redding ended up sitting on a dock on the San Francisco Bay thanks to Bill Graham, who ran the Fillmore West Auditorium. Redding played three shows there, December 20-22, 1966. Graham gave Redding a choice: he could stay at a hotel, or at a boathouse in nearby Sausalito.
