Random Notes 2012: Hottest Rock Pictures

Known for its eclectic, sometimes bizarre line-ups – last year featured sets from Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Mac Miller, My Chemical Romance, Incubus and Bon Jovi – Bamboozle started as a small three-day event in Asbury Park, New Jersey, in 2003. By 2006 it was big enough to land at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, though last year, for its 10th anniversary, it returned to Asbury Park.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
