Great read - thanks for posting!

The problem with hearing about events from people "who were there" is that many remember events entirely differently! Conflicting stories about the whistling at the end of the tune. Cropper says it was just a placeholder where more vocals might have been added. Per Steve "the record would be different if Otis had come back on Monday". Bell says the whistling was "the pure essence of Otis - done on purpose". We still don't know!
