(SITTIN' ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY
Cat no. 81227932206
(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay is released as a 7" single on gold vinyl to mark the golden anniversary of 50 years since the single's release. The track continues to transcend generations, holding the distinction of being one of a handful of songs from the '60s to have over 100 million streams on Spotify. A detailed reproduction of the original mono single, it features the B-Side - Sweet Lorene, is branded as a Volt release, and comes in a die-cut sleeve like those used by Atlantic Records, which was distributed Stax / Volt Records at the time. This single includes the rare, original version of the song, which is shorter and with Redding's vocals noticeably lower in the mix. This original version was quickly pulled after a brief release and replaced with the version that the world has known ever since. This anniversary 7-inch marks the first time the original version has appeared on vinyl since the initial release in 1968.
