Otis Redding’s Lost Record Is Found But Won’t Be Released Because “It’s Trash”
The long lost Otis Redding album, originally recorded in 1965, two years before the iconic singer’s death, has finally resurfaced. The one and only copy of the record won’t be distributed, however, because it’s confirmed butt.
The “King of Soul’s” lost work is a nostalgic piece, titled Low Tide Don’t Smell Like It Used To. The few people who’ve listened to Low Tide say the name fits and have decided not to release it. Instead, they recommend the one-of-a-kind record be used as a tiny toilet seat for potty training.
“It’s dookie, straight up,” says producer No Mic Up On, who’s responsible for finding the legendary musician’s dogshit recordings. “I got through half then unloaded a bottle of Febreze on it because it’s garbage.” Since then, No Mic had been using the vinyl record as a coaster in his studio.
We asked No Mic if he thinks it’s a disservice to the industry to withhold new music from a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. “Nah, not this record,” he explained, “I’m gonna use it as a frisbee to entertain the local strays instead.”
Fortunately for our readers, FLEXX was given exclusive access to Low Tide. We were able to confirm that Otis Redding’s lost album is indeed ass.
It be like that sometimes.
