You know they wrote "To Love Somebody" for Otis Redding, but sadly he died before he could record it.
I think he was all set to record it as well. It would have been perfect for him. Then maybe we would have been spared Michael Bolton's version.
Yeah, their late '60s stuff is brilliant. I also really like "Lonely Days." Very Lennonish vocals. Al Green does a great version of "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart."
Getting back to "To Love Somebody," there was a great version of this done with Rod Stewart and Booker T and the MGs back in the mid '70s. (Before Al Jackson was murdered) A great reminder of why Rod Stewart once really mattered.
And in the end...
