I know what you mean, but Otis Redding recorded quite a few tunes with thumping (or at least "prominent") bass and drums.  Having those elements does not negate them being "Soul" to me.  Then again, who gets to define what "Soul Music" is anyhow?

I notice that no one has rated this below 5, but come ON!  If a song ever deserved a 10, its surely this one.

I have an issue with this song.
There's no  11/10 score available in the RP pulldown rating system. 

This song is beyond perfect.

I think that there should be some kind of automatic thingy in this thread that keeps this post at the top regardless of anything else that may be written after it.  Utterly Godlike piece of music.

the reason we sing about pain, write poetry about pain and live with pain (see:  Zevon, Warren  "Accidentally Like A Martyr") is that if we were to express it everyday conversation most women would consider us weak.

I can still see him and feel him live, can't recall what venue in SF, I think he may of been with the Chambers brothers? or Country Joe / Fish.
This man was the pinnacle of the times. Another disciple of the Electric Church.

I live down the street from the bridge named after him in Macon, GA.  Macon has to be one of the most prolific cities for music talent in the US with a population under a million.  It is unreal who rolled out of here.
