Shake: Otis at Monterey

Institute History

  • 1987 Sundance Film Festival


The Monterey Pop Festival would be the last major concert for Otis Redding before he was killed in a plane crash in December 1967. In this gem of a film, Redding sings some of his best loved titles: “Shake,” “Respect,” “I’ve Been Loving You” and “Tenderness.”

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.

For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
