Otis Redding never recorded a lighter, more purely entertaining record than King & Queen, a collection of duets with Stax labelmate Carla Thomas. In all likelihood inspired by a series of popular duets recorded by Marvin Gaye indeed, "It Takes Two," Gaye's sublime collaboration with Kim Weston, is covered here the record serves no greater purpose than to allow Redding the chance to run through some of the era's biggest soul hits, including "Knock on Wood," "Tell It Like It Is" and "When Something Is Wrong with My Baby,"and while clearly not a personal triumph on a par with either Otis Blue or The Dictionary of Soul, the set is still hugely succcessful on its own terms.
Redding and Thomas enjoy an undeniable chemistry, and they play off each other wonderfully; while sparks fly furiously throughout King and Queen, the album's highlight is the classic Hip Hop break track "Tramp,"where their battle of the sexes reaches its fever pitch in supremely witty fashion.
