The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads (180 Gram Vinyl)
The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads, simply referred to as Soul Ballads or Sings Soul Ballads, is the second album by American soul singer-songwriter Otis Redding, released in 1965. The album was one of the first Volt albums, and Redding's first on this label.
Like Redding's debut Pain in My Heart, Soul Ballads features both soul classics and originals written by Redding or Stax members. The album was possibly the first to feature Isaac Hayes on piano, but this is disputed, as he was not credited on the liner notes. While the album and its singles were moderately successful on the music charts, it includes Redding's first top-ten single, "Mr. Pitiful".
