By the spring of 1966, 24-year-old Otis Redding was a bona-fide star on the R&B and soul radio waves. The singer was enjoying the critical and commercial success of his third studio album, Otis Blue, and was watching his singles cross over to the (typically very white) pop charts. Redding had yet to be fully embraced by a white audience, and this weekend-long gig in Hollywoodbooked at a venue known more for hosting hippies, and launching bands like The Doors, The Byrds and Buffalo Springfieldwas a shrewd move to introduce Redding to a new market. In fact, Redding would be the first major soul act to perform on the Whiskys stage
