Otis Redding's fourth studio album, released in 1966, features Redding performing songs that he co-wrote, as well as covers of songs by such peers as Sam Cooke, Eddie Floyd, Roy Head and Smokey Robinson. Guitarist Steve Cropper contributed guitar on the album, and is also credited as the co-author of three tracks.

AllMusic says The Soul Album shows Redding moving from strength to strength in a string of high-energy, sweaty soul cover performances, recasting them in his own style, so that they're not "covers" so much as reinterpretations. Redding still had a little way to go as a songwriter — the jewel of this undervalued collection is "Cigarettes and Coffee," co-authored by Eddie Thomas and Jerry Butler — but as an iterpreter he was without peer, and his albums were showing a remarkably high level of consistency.
