Otis Redding's Road Band




The Upsetters dedicated the original album to the super talents of the late, great Otis Redding.  The group played behind Otis while he was touring the States during one nighters and concerts.  Jimmy Wess sings the following hits which Otis orbited to stardom -- "DOCK OF THE BAY," "RESPECT," "SATISFACTION" and "CAN'T TURN YOU LOOSE."


The other sounds in this CD all feature the Memphis groove.  The Upsetters had a tremendous following of their own.  They appeared in all the major cities on the East coast.


The album was conceived, co-arranged and produced by the multi-talented John Madara.


Lend an ear and spend an excitng one-half hour adventure in sound as you listen to "Otis Redding's Road Band, Tribute To Otis, The Upsetters featuring Jimmy Wess."


The CD is presented by songwriter/record producer, John Madara, through THAT PHILLY SOUND.  John Madara and partner, Dave White, both Philadelphia Walk of Fame 2013 inductees, wrote and produced such timeless classics as AT THE HOP (Danny and The Juniors), ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY (written by Dave White and Produced by John Madara), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), 1-2-3 (Len Barry, who co-wrote the song with Madara & White) and YOU DON'T OWN ME (Lesley Gore, produced by the great Quincy Jones).  These and countless other hit records by Madara & White helped to make up "The Sound of Philadelphia."
