Six Degrees Of Sampling: Otis Redding

While the world continues to freak over Kanye/Jay-Z collab “Otis” - by either embracing the smooth sounds of Otis Redding classic “Try A Little Tenderness” or denouncing the overt sample as being the most blatant rip of all time - I got to thinking: What’s less boring even more intriguing than talking about one of the most widely-anticipated and currently the most-discussed sample out there (How much did it cost? Otis is turning over in his grave! This is so amazing/sexy/lame/zzzzzzzzzz)? Let’s look at a song that was sampled for a track by The Man himself! (hint: The Man in this case is neither Jay-Z or Kanye. I know. Dig deep.)

Tramp” is one of my favorite Otis Redding tracks, if for no other reason than a reminder to bring this insult back into the vernacular. It came on the last album released before his death in 1968 - coincidentally another collab album with fellow Stax star Carla Thomas - titled King & Queen. The funky basslines are lifted straight from The Temptations’I’m Losing You” in the way one might say samples are meant to be taken - with a touch of subtlety.
