  1. Ce site est tout simplement fantastique! La musique que j'ai toujours aimé, mon univers ... MERCI MERCI MERCI!!!
    Celui-ci est à mon avis le meilleur album d'Otis Redding, j'ai une réédition en vinyle acheté il ya au moins 25 ans (j'étais adolescent, mais avec des goûts musicaux bien déterminées) ... MERCI jamais assez!!

  2. A big thanks for one by Otis that I didn't have.
