"Look At That Girl" was released posthumously as a single and as the final track off Redding's penultimate 1969 Love Man LP. Essentially, this song provides an inkling of the funky direction Otis was heading before his untimely death at the age of 26. I might be sentenced for soul heresy by suggesting this, but its my belief that the King of Soul's greatest recordings were the potential ones he could've created between 1967 and 1974, had he somehow survived that tragic plane crash.
