@levittfoundation: #OnThisDay with Otis Redding
Posted On Dec 7, 2021
#OnThisDay in 1967, Otis Redding recorded ”(Sittin’ On) the Dock of the Bay.” The iconic whistling at the end of the song was intended to be replaced with words, but the recording was never finished — Redding died three days later, making the song the first posthumous No. 1 single in US chart history.
