Forget about it. Otis Redding's performance at the Monterey Pop Festival is hands down one of the great all time stage shows ever. The video above has the ass-end of "Shake," which opened the set. Then it goes in to the subject of today's post, "I've Been Loving You Too Long." He got up in front of those hippies and just dropped some science.
I really admire Otis for this one performance, because usually musicians put in an uncomfortable situation (like him playing before a basically all-white audience, which was unusual for soul singers at the time) generally don't give their all. He just got up and owned the stage. Seriously.
