Anthem of the Day (Part 4)

“ "(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay " is a song co-written by soul singer Otis Redding and guitarist Steve Cropper. Redding recorded it twice in 1967, including just three days before his death in a plane crash on December 10, 1967. It was released on Stax Records’ Volt label in 1968,[4] becoming the first posthumous #1 single in the US.[5] It reached #3 on the UK Singles Chart.”

I love all Otis’ songs. Just included the wiki up there to note that “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” was released after he died. Age 27 I think. Plane crash.

One of my favorite albums in '72 was Talking Book. It brings back memories of my first loving relationship. I was 20 she was 18,a senior in high school. I followed her to Gainesville and Santa Fe Community College. Ultimately she broke my heart. I got over it. About 16 years ago she got my digits from my baby sis and we started talking. It was really nice. I helped her through a rough time and we remain friends. Reckon a part of me will always love her❤️
