This album, released posthumously, captured Otis Redding's show at the Whisky A Go Go from April of 1966 in Los Angeles. What is essential here was that it captured Otis Redding's sound in a small club with his own touring band, as opposed to his work on stage with Booker T and the MG's. The singer and his band (including a pair of tenor saxes, a trombone, and four trumpets, with James Young, Ralph Stewart, and Elbert Woodson pounding out the rhythm on guitar, bass, and drums, respectively, go through roaring versions of 'Respect,' 'I Can't Turn You Loose,' 'These Arms of Mine,' 'Pain in My Heart,' 'Satisfaction' and 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag' and four more, in Redding's only full-length recording in a small-scale setting.
