The second posthumous releases after Redding died in December 1967 – recordings made during the spring, summer and fall of 1967. Atlantic owned the rights to Redding’s catalog and all unreleased masters, so issued these albums under the ATCO label in the US.

Personnel not credited on the release, but All Music says Booker T. Jones, Isaac Hayes, Steve Cropper, Donald “Duck” Dunn, Al Jackson Jr., Wayne Jackson, Andrew Love, Joe Arnold.

Phenomenal set of recordings: “I’ve Got Dreams to Remember” and “Hard to Handle” are standouts for me, but there’s also a version or Ray Charles; “A Fool For You” that’s great.

My copy is the 2022 Vinyl Me Please reissue, with listening notes by Andrew Winistorfer and lacquers cut by Ryan Smith.
