RhinoOctober will mark the 50th anniversary of the release of Otis Redding‘s influential studio album Complete and Unbelievable…The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul, which featured the late soul icon’s enduring tune “Try a Little Tenderness.” To mark the milestone, deluxe multi-disc editions of the album will be released on CD and vinyl on October 7.

The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul hit stores on October 16, 1966, and peaked at #5 on Billboard‘s R&B chart. In addition to “Try a Little Tenderness,” which reached #25 on the Billboard Hot 100, the album included the #29 single “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)” and a cover of The Beatles‘ “Day Tripper.” The two-CD edition of the 50th anniversary release features mono and stereo versions of the original album and eight bonus tracks, including an extended live rendition of “Try a Little Tenderness” and an early studio take of the tune.

The vinyl edition of Dictionary of Soul contains mono and stereo versions of the album on separate LPs, plus a bonus seven-inch disc replicating the original “Try a Little Tenderness” single backed with “I’m Sick Y’All.”

Redding recorded Dictionary of Soul backing from Booker T. & the MG’s, Isaac Hayes on piano and The Memphis Horns. It was Otis’ final solo studio album before his tragic death in a plane crash at age 26 in December 1967.

Complete and Unbelievable…The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul (50th Anniversary Edition) also will be available as a digital download.
