By 1966, Otis Redding and Carla Thomas were both established stars on both the pop and R&B charts. Carla, at home in Memphis for the Christmas holidays, recorded this good natured exchange, where she rips Otis with one insult after another. The song went to #2 on the R&B charts, and #26 on the pop charts the next year. The drumming, of course, was supplied by the able Al Jackson Jr.

I have been using the Classic Rock Drum Charts collection for many years. There is nothing better to practice and rehearse to, than these charts transcribed by James Morton.Michael Sheahan
