I ran that Sam and Dave clip from this same show featuring the "Stax/Volt Revue" on tour in Europe -- which meant that the house band was Booker T. and the MG's and the Mar-Keys -- a little earlier, but as good as Sam and Dave might have been, they paled in comparison to Otis Redding, who immediately followed them. He was The Man. This was his closing song. Whew. Seven months after this, Redding died in a plane crash. It was one of the great losses to music.
