    Rhino has announced an expanded, remastered edition of Otis Redding's 1966 album Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul. Due out on April 22, the double disc set includes a mono version of the record on the first CD and a stereo version on the second, both of which are backed by B-sides, live tracks and previously unreleased alternate mixes.

    As for Otis Blue's importance in the scheme of Redding's catalogue, it was recorded in 24 hours by the Stax house band (featuring Isaac Hayes, Booker T. & the MG's, and more) and includes a pre-Aretha version of "Respect" as well as a hefty stack of covers. Among them are renditions of songs from the Rolling Stones, Sam Cooke, the Temptations, and Solomon Burke.
