The Immortal Otis Redding is a posthumous studio album by American soul recording artist Otis Redding, released in June 1968 by Atco Records. It compiles 11 songs recorded by Redding in a three-week stretch of sessions that concluded days prior to his death in December 1967. "The Happy Song (Dum-Dum)" was the only song previously released, having been a single in April 1968.
The Immortal featured four charting singles including "The Happy Song", "I've Got Dreams to Remember", "Amen", and "Hard to Handle".
Robert Christgau, writing in Creem magazine in 1977, said that it is his favorite Otis Redding album and "probably among my five most-played LPs", because it "showcases the unduplicated warmth, tenderness, and humor of his ballad singing." In Paul Gambaccini's 1978 poll of prominent rock critics, The Immortal Otis Redding was voted as the 33rd best album ever. Christgau ranked it third in his own list. Music critic Dave Marsh gave the album five stars in The New Rolling Stone Record Guide (1983). Lindsay Planer of Allmusic gave it three-and-a-half stars and said that, although it "wasn't quite on par with" Redding's other "half-dozen studio albums", the songs are "welcome (if not mandatory) additions to all manner of listeners."
