another similar track might be Soul Man by Sam and Dave, riff wise, but that might be me taking a wild guess. Probably written by a similar time period, or men of similar backgrounds.

The fact that Otis Redding was in his twenties when this song came out never ceases to amaze me. I thought he was at least forty-someth i n g .
