Among the samples included on this song are for the organ line, "Life" by Sly & the Family Stone and for the bass line "Apart Of Me" by Country Funk. The whistling at the beginning of the track was taken from "The Moog and Me" by American jazz pianist/keyboardist Dick Hyman. Thank you Songfacts

KEXP actually has a whole documentary segment dedicated Otis Redding. Check it. http://kexp.org/learn/documentaries/?docid=7. " Otis Redding was 26 years-old when his plane went down in a Michigan lake. But in his short life he became one of the top soul performers of all time by living each day to the fullest with his writing, recording and performance. Both Otis and his record label, the integrated Stax records, were instrumental at bringing the races together during the 60’s Civil Rights Era. And both went up in smoke when Otis passed away".

Name on a Matchbook
by Springtime Carnivore
(43 plays) | (1 fan)

"Behind the season and the dietary preference of Springtime Carnivore is Los Angeles-based artist Greta Morgan. With her quirkily-named one-woman project, Morgan infuses a ’60s girl-group sound with a modern-day synth-sensibility".

Read about Television at http://blog.kexp.org/2012/08/30/review-revue-television-marquee-moon/ Also did you know “The song ‘Marquee Moon’ was actually truncated a bit in order to fit on an LP side for its original release. The full version is also well worth its 10:40 running time".
