    Gratifyingly, this entry in the welcome STAX PROFILES series includes many of Otis Redding's more down-tempo songs. Since his death in 1967, the Macon, Georgia artist has gained an undeserved reputation as a mere soul shouter, which one listen to subtle, beautifully set songs like "My Lover's Prayer" and the timeless "I've Got Dreams to Remember" will instantly disprove. Though perhaps not possessing Marvin Gaye's finesse or Al Green's agility, Redding's voice has a wonderful humanity that's impeccably displayed here on tracks like the mid-tempo "Happy Song" and "Direct Me," the latter originally the B-side of his posthumous single, "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay."
