id definitely agree with Monterey being the 1st listen ... its just about the most essential live performance of all time . ..

I prefer the first Whiskey a Go Go to the Monterey show. More tunes and an equal amount of good. All of his studio albums I like a lot or love. The man could do no wrong.

He died in a lake that's a stone's throw from where I live


Oh and ...Sings Soul is p dang good, though I never really liked his version of A Change is Gonna Come. But maybe that's just because Cooke's is so amazing.

I love the Otis version. Its the dirt between your fingernails. The sweat on your balls. You can hear the pain in his voice. It is awesome.

subjective of course, i hear far more emotion in the other 2 versions, but its all about preference. i believe i like him the most on the faster numbers though , but thats a given cause he is dynamite live, though the other 2 arent too shabby either by any means..
