otis redding wrote and performed this song for the first time in early december 1968. a few weeks later he was killed in a plane crash. his friend james brown warned him not fly that night because of the weather. as a famous comedian from my generation used to: you could look it up.

(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay is a masterpiece by Otis Redding. RIP on the bottom of Lake Mendota. What a loss.

this song is interwoven with my memories of war stories, war protests, civil rights gatherings, political conventions, and listening to baseball games on the radio. What a time!
