SONG FOR TODAY: Otis Redding and Carla Thomas -Tramp


Classic track taken from 'King & Queen', a studio album by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas. It is Redding's sixth album and Thomas's fourth, and the final studio album released by Redding before his death on December 10, 1967. Influenced by Marvin Gaye's duets, the album features ten covers of soul classics and the eleventh finishing song co-written by Redding. Three singles were released from the album: 'Tramp', the first cut song, was released as a single in April and peaked at number two on Billboard R&B chart and at number twenty-six on Billboard Hot 100. Following Redding's death in December 1967, the single 'Lovey Dovey' was also released. The original album's liner notes were written by Tennessee Senator Howard H. Baker, Jr. It was released on March 16, 1967 by Stax Records.
