Craig Charles talks to deep soul star Otis Clay about Martin Shore's new music documentary, Take Me to the River.
When it comes to deep soul, there's no argument that Otis Clay is king. He helped shape the sound of the New Generation in the '60s with his powerful, soul-wrenching, gospel-tinged performances. Otis co-stars in director Martin Shore's new music documentary Take Me To The River, which showcases a group of southern soul legends (including Bobby Rush, William Bell, and the late Bobby Bland) combining with a new generation of rappers to illustrate how the region's indigenous music has changed over the decades.
