Otis Redding wrote this song while living on a houseboat in Sausalito on the San Francisco Bay. We discovered the actual spot where Otis' housboat was berthed, and shot new Super8 footage from the spot for use in this video. Thanks to Anne Garfield, Joel Selvin and Bill Belmont. Otis recorded this song shortly before his tragic death. Steve Cropper finished production on the song after Otis' plane went down. Released posthumously, it was Otis' biggest hit ever. Enjoy!
