I wasted my time but there's not reason to waste yours so I'll make this brief and put another post up straight away. In about a dozen album's time we'll listen to Dreams to Remember an anthology of Otis Redding which contains the entire of Dock of the Bay except for four songs which didn't make the grade. The only reason to listen to this album over the far superior Dreams is to hear those four songs. The only thing I have to say about them is that they're not worth putting on an Otis Redding hits anthology.

I could write lots about how pointless this list can be when it replicates itself rather than make room for other music but I've said it lots of times before and no doubt I'll be saying it again before I finish the list.

Highlight: The tracks on Dreams to Remember
Lowlight: The other four tracks

Influenced by: Soul
Influenced: Rod Stewart

Favourite Amazon Customer Review Quote: This album had a mongrel begining. It has a thoroughbred history.

-Oooh good quote. Well done
