Sam Cooke and Otis Redding Songbag

Without question two of the greatest singers of their generations and many more to come, Sam Cooke and Otis Redding left us with a legacy of historically unforgettable performances and recordings. Sam’s smooth, silky voice, at once clean and road weary, are often compared to the sheer power and raw emotion of Otis’s masterful renderings. Join Alton Smith and Bill Brickey for this Songbag featuring the most covered songs in the world: That’s How Strong My Love Is, Dock of the Bay, Twisting, Shake, Respect, That’s Where It’s At, Fa fa fa fa fa,  Hard to Handle, You Send Me and more. We’ll end the night with A Change Is Gonna Come, a song written by Sam Cooke and covered by Otis Redding.
