Soul Series- Otis Redding: Champagne and Wine

Growing up in Chicago I spent many Sundays listening to Otis Redding playing from the stereo system. My mom has always been a big fan of Redding and would sing along to his songs as she did chores around the house. At first I didn’t like how sad or emotional his music was until I became much older and able to really grasp soul music.

One song that I always return to over the years is “Champagne and Wine”. It is one of Redding’s most laidback and joyful songs about love. Check it out above.
