I picked this photo and blurb up this AM from Soul Source. I hadn't seen this before and thought I'd share:
Otis promoting one of the venues on the 1967 Stax/Volt tour - Billy Walker's Upper Cut club in East London.The tour took in the U.K./France and Scandinavia and brought most of those artists over here for the first time.Pretty much all the venues were on the theatre circuit - I guess this that this was the only performance in a club environment.
Anyone who was around at the time will remember Billy Walker as one of the iconic British boxers of the 1960's. A good looking guy - they called him the Blond Bomber. He was on the fringes of the Swinging 60's/Mod scene along with other sports stars like George Best and Bobby Moore. The pinnacle of his boxing career was fighting Henry Cooper for the British heavyweight title - but he was beaten on a TKO.
