Named the eighth greatest singer of all-time by Rolling Stone magazine: Otis Redding was born this day in 1941, which means today would have been his 74th birthday. Tragically, though, he was killed in a plane crash at just 26 years of age: another great loss to music.

This clip (for TV programme Upbeat) was recorded in Cleveland, Ohio on December 9th, 1967 - the day before he died.
