Otis Redding DVD
I have received the following request for help from the production company Reeling In The Years:
Hello Otis Redding and Stax lovers,
This is David Peck and Phil Galloway from Reelin' In The Years Productions. We along with writer/historian Rob Bowman (author of Soulsville USA: The Story Of Stax Records) are producing a new anthology DVD of classic complete TV performances by the great Otis Redding. The DVD is looking really nice and in addition to spectacular Otis performances, it will also include newly filmed interviews with Jim Stewart, Steve Cropper, Wayne Jackson, and Zelma & Karla Redding (Otis' wife and daughter.) For more info about other DVDs that we've produced, including Motown anthologies of Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, please see our website at www.reelinintheyears.com.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! We're coming up short on memorabilia for the booklet and interview sections of the program and need quality hi-res scans of Otis Redding memorabilia. We need everything: posters, handbills, sheet music, picture sleeves, album covers, 45s, advertisements (1967 and earlier), magazine articles, newspaper clippings, collectibles, gold records and anything else Otis-related. We need photos, but we also need to know who the original photographer was or who owns the rights to the photos. We're also looking for old promotional photos used by the label. Our only constraint is nothing macabre or dealing with the plane crash.
Since we already have some items, please let us know what you have before taking the time to scan anything. Of course we will include your name in the DVD booklet and the credit scroll on the DVD itself. If you have anything particularly cool we can also work out some financial remuneration. Please send us a list of what you've got to firstname.lastname@example.org (please include your phone number).If you've seen any of our other DVDs then you know that we make every effort to have each DVD worthy of the artist. Thank you in advance for contributing to make this the best Otis DVD possible. As we all know, the man truly deserves it
Thank you in advance,
David Peck & Phil Galloway
