‘I just said immediately — this is it’: Steve Cropper knew he had a hit with this Otis Redding favorite

‘I just said immediately — this is it’: Steve Cropper knew he had a hit with this Otis Redding favorite | Reeling in the Years | Scoop.it

Steve Cropper has had a composing hand in a number of iconic songs, from Wilson Pickett’s “In the Midnight Hour” to Booker T. and the MGs’ “Green Onions” to Eddie Floyd’s “Knock on Wood.” He’s served as a producer for countless others, including Tower of Power, REO Speedwagon, John Mayall and Poco.

But there was one time that stands out, one time in which Cropper says he knew — right from the first — that he had a huge hit on his hands: “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” a song Cropper collaborated on with the late, great Otis Redding.

Vivaldi's insight:

Still a superb performer and raconteur.  He tours with The Animals once a year in the UK and we have seen them for the last two years and going again this October.  Truly a living legend.

Famed Motown singer Jimmy Ruffin gravely ill

Famed Motown singer Jimmy Ruffin gravely ill | Reeling in the Years | Scoop.it
(October 17, 2014) We are sad to inform SoulTrackers that Motown great Jimmy Ruffin is gravely ill in a Las Vegas hospital. His family is asking for prayers. Known to many as the older brother of former Temptations lead David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin had a solid career of his own, with periods of chart success that resulted in three of Motown's greatest tunes of the late 60s and a surprise hit more than a decade later.
