THE SLOOPY * BILLY YOUNG * JOTIS 469 * USA
Produced and written by Otis Redding and recorded on his own short lived Jotis label, The Sloopy, though not issued in the UK until 1972 (see below), was, for many fans of Soul music, in London at least, a seriously 'in' record at the time of its release. A one time member of The Classics Billy Young cut his debut solo record for Original Sound in 1963, also recorded for Chess, Grotto, Joya, Mercury, and Shout.
