This record is one of the most heartfelt, soulful tributes ever cut to wax.
William Bell wrote this song days after Otis' tragic death in 1967 and sent it to Otis' widow Zelda more as a private message of sympathy. Legend has it that Zelda loved the track so much she insisted that Stax release it, immediately. Thankfully, they did.
The beautiful picture sleeve shown here is a French issue.
