Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul (often referred to simply as Otis Blue) is the third studio album by American soul singer Otis Redding. It was first released on September 15, 1965, by Volt Records. The album mainly consists of cover versions of other R&B and soul artists' hits, and, bar one track, was recorded in a 24-hour period over July 9 and 10, 1965, at the Stax Recording Studios in Memphis, Tennessee
Otis Redding's third album, and his first fully realized album, presents his talent unfettered, his direction clear, and his confidence emboldened, with fully half the songs representing a reach that extended his musical grasp. More than a quarter of this album is given over to Redding's versions of songs by Sam Cooke, his idol, who had died the previous December, and all three are worth owning and hearing

Redding s third album, OTIS BLUE: OTIS REDDING SINGS SOUL, is considered his first LP masterpiece, and it ranks on Rolling Stone s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, noting that it was recorded in a single 24-hour period in 1965, calls it, a virtual soul-music primer. The original album features a trio of songs by Sam Cooke, Redding s idol, who had passed away shortly before OTIS BLUE was made
Otis Blue features a small taste of Redding’s song writing talent; only three songs on the album are Redding originals. A cynic might be tempted to write off the album immediately in this light, however, one listen to Otis Redding’s versions dispels any such notion. The tracks are as definitive, gripping and stylish as the originals in all cases. There’s not a cut on Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul that a fan of the genre can consider a weak track. However, there are probably better compilations of Redding’s own originals that include the three here and there are also larger and more complete collections of his work as an artist interpreting the work of others. As such, despite the relative perfection of just about every song, it isn’t an completely essential album statement, something that Redding’s abbreviated career denied.
On July 8, 1965, Otis Redding was a young soul singer of modest renown, less than three months removed from releasing his first Top 10 r&b hit single. By July 10, he had become something else entirely: It took only 24 hours to lay down 10 of the 11 songs that would make up Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul, arguably the 1960s' greatest studio-recorded soul LP. (The only track not recorded at that time was the hit, "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Friends and associates had noticed Redding's growing confidence as a singer, and once Otis Blue hit shelves it was.
