I Can’t Turn You Loose (Otis Redding)


‘I Can’t Turn You Loose’ by Otis Redding peaked at #29 on the UK charts on this day in 1966. He had just featured as the star of a 'Ready Steady Go' TV special a couple of weeks earlier, during which he gave a high-energy performance of the song, backed by the Mar-Keys. This was one of his faster-paced numbers, with the unmistakably gritty soul sound of Stax, and had previously been to #11 on the US R&B charts in 1965.
