Otis Redding – Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones) Owned ‘Live in Europe’ 1st Press LP w/’Satisfaction’ (Artist Owned)
A mono first pressing of Otis Redding’s 1967 album Live in Europe, from the legendary collection of Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman.
Bill Wyman is legendary as a musician, a blues historian, an author and for his world-class collection of Rolling Stones memorabilia. This album was sold by him in the Bill Wyman and his Rolling Stones Archive sale at Julien’s Auctions (if you haven’t already seen the Wyman documentary The Quiet One, we enthusiastically recommend it.)
The Julien’s Auction descriptive card, a copy of which is included, notes The Rolling Stones were great admirers of Redding and covered a number of his songs including “Pain in My Heart” on their 1965 album The Rolling Stones, Now! They followed this with a cover of “That’s How Strong My Love Is” on their 1965 Out of Our Heads album. They also recorded a version of Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” that was released on their 1966 Got Live If you Want It! album with added crowd atmosphere to make it sound as though it had been performed live. Redding borrowed from the Stones as well when he had a big hit with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”.
A live version of “Satisfaction” is included on this album.
