Otis Redding vinyl

Recommended Posts

There is a new documentary DvD about Otis Redding available: "Dreams To Remember: The Legacy Of Otis Redding." For everyone who loves the maan and his music, it will be a treasure in his/her collection.

I have it, and from the very beginning I knew it was a special piece. So, I was not very much surprised when I found this article by Reeling in The Years Productions a few days ago.

A clip from the video is here: http://www.amazon.com/Dreams-Remember-Lega...3155&sr=1-4

Dear All,

It's official, thanks to your support "Dreams To Remember: The Legacy Of

Otis Redding" is on the Grammy ballot in the category of Best Long Form

Music Video (Category #110).

There is a short window to ensure that this DVD is nominated. All

ballots from the voters must be RECEIVED by November 7th. There are 158

entires in this category on the ballot (Last year there was almost 500)

so we have some serious competition. However all of the press that Stax

has garnered this year for its 50th anniversary celebration will help us

with the voters as will the fact that Otis Redding was so dearly loved

and that December 10th marks the 40th anniversary of his tragic death in

plane crash.

All voters get to submit five choices from the list of 158 on the ballot

so we're hoping that they will make "Dreams To Remember: The Legacy Of

Otis Redding" (which is entry #102) one of their five in the category

of Best Long Form Music Video. The top five will be announced in early

December and then we'll see if "Dreams To Remember: The Legacy Of Otis

Redding" is nominated for a Grammy.

We can't think of a more fitting tribute to this great man than to have

him nominated for a Grammy (and hopefully win) 40 years after his

untimely passing.

In addition to "Dreams To Remember: The Legacy Of Otis Redding," Reelin'

In The Years Productions have three other titles on the ballot for

consideration.

(1) Jazz Icons: John Coltrane; Live In '60, '61 & '65 (Entry #27)

(2) Smokey Robinson & The Miracles Definitive Performances 1963 - 1987

(Entry #104)

(3) American Folk Blues Festival (The British Tours 1963- 1966) (Entry

#134) (Volume One was nominated for a Grammy in 2004)

Again thank all for your support.

Sincerely,

David A. Peck

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
