I always got a kick out of Redding's little monologue before this performance of his song "Respect," because he acknowledges that Aretha Franklin had already taken the song and made it her own -- but he was gonna do it anyway. This was from his legendary performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, only four months before he died in a plane crash. The band once again is essentially Booker T. and the MGs, notably Steve Cropper on guitar.
