Otis Redding

Shake

Composed by Sam Cooke

Song Review by

Another immaculate cover by Otis Redding of a Sam Cooke classic, "Shake" was a staple of Redding's live sets. To that end, a great version appears on the Rhino anthology, Dreams to Remember, as well as the Monterey Pop box set. The studio version grooves a bit more than the frantic, almost out-of control live version. A true soul dance record.
