King & Queen - Otis Redding and Carla Thomas

I reminded myself about this unmatchable classic album in another thread.

The renown Otis Redding ("straight from the Georgia woods") and Carla Thomas of Memphis R&B royalty, rewarded us with eleven superlative Soul duets ("Two can make just any place seem just like bein' at home").

The album features Stax horns and rhythm section (keyboards:Booker T. Jones & Isaac Hayes; guitar:Steve Cropper; bass:Donald "Duck" Dunn; drums:Al Jackson,Jr.; trumpet:Wayne Jackson; tenor sax:Andrew Love; alto sax:Joe Arnold) at peak performance.

The song Tramp is pretty much guaranteed to keep a spring in your step and a smile on your face all day.
