Otis Redding


Composed by Otis Redding / Margaret Wessen

Song Review by

A stinging, up-tempo groover, "Security" showed Otis Redding stretching his funky rock & roll roots. Aided by the usual gang of Stax musicians, it's one of his tightest early records. As noted in the essay in the Rhino Records Dreams to Remember anthology, the song could have easily succeeded as an instrumental.
