180g Audiophile Vinyl LP Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Atco Records Stereophonic Tapes!
Includes "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay," "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin" & "I Heard It Through The Grapevine!"


King Curtis will be forever known as one of the leading voices of the '60s soul renaissance and truly one of the more championed musicians during his short lifetime. Thanks to today’s respect and care given to his music by a whole new generation of musicians and fans, King Curtis forever reigns as one of soul’s pioneers. Much like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, and other superstars before him, Curtis Owsley (King Curtis) had the necessary ingredients of stellar musicianship and songwriting acumen which successfully reached across all gospel, soul, rock and pop genres.

King Curtis created some of his greatest sides ever for ATCO Records, where he spent his time on earth creating some of the most masterful and funkiest soul music ever waxed. In 1968, he was honored with his first greatest hits collection simply titled “The Best of King Curtis.” This stunning array of his most memorable hit singles and stellar album staples continues to illustrate how important a force he was then and still is today, over four decades since!

“The Best of King Curtis” features a heavy menu of his finest moments like the funk infused “Harper Valley P.T.A.” and Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made To Love Her”, the definitive balladry of Ben E. King’s “Spanish Harlem”, and of course his chart toppers “Ode To Billie Joe” “Soul Serenade” and a definitive tribute to his friend Otis Redding with “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay” which truly opened up a worldwide audience to this sorely missed genius.

This 1968 Greatest Hits LP hasn’t been available on vinyl for many decades. Friday Music is very proud to announce for the first time ever the stunning 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of The Best Of King Curtis. Mastered impeccably from the original ATCO Records tapes by Joe “Philly Soul” Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, these classic tracks truly reach sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain.

To further enhance your listening enjoyment, also included are original artwork elements by Loring Eutemey and the classic photo of King Curtis by Stephen Paley.
