The Dock of the Bay is the first of a number of posthumously released Otis Redding albums, and his seventh studio album. It contains a number of singles and B-sides dating back to 1965 and one of his best known songs, the posthumous hit "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay". In 2003, the album was ranked number 161 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Otis Redding wrote the first verse of the song, under the abbreviated title "Dock of the Bay," on his promoter Bill Graham's rented houseboat at Waldo Point in Sausalito, California in August 1967. Many songs by Otis Redding were co-written was guitarist Steve Cropper. This song wasn't an exception. The song's two co-writers exchanged ideas while playing the song. The song was covered many times by a wide range of various artists. Sammy Hagar made a cover of the song as a non-album single in 1979 with Steve Cropper on guitar and Boston's members Brad Delp, Sib Hashian, and Barry Goudreau on backup vocals. Otis Redding's sons Dexter and Otis III along with their cousin Mark (known as The Reddings) covered this song in 1982. Michael Bolton's cover reached the eleventh chart position in the US in 1987.

Producer/guitarist Steve Cropper had a difficult task to perform in pulling together this album, the first of several posthumous releases issued by Stax/Volt in the wake of Redding's death. What could have been a cash-in effort or a grim memorial album instead became a vivid, exciting presentation of some key aspects of the talent that was lost when Redding died. Dock of the Bay is, indeed, a mixed bag of singles and B-sides going back to July of 1965, one hit duet with Carla Thomas, and two, previously unissued tracks from 1966 and 1967.

Cropper produced the album when Redding died, including this track with various songs Redding had recorded the last few years. In a 1990 interview on NPR's Fresh Air, Cropper explained: "Otis was one of those kind of guys who had 100 ideas. Anytime he came in to record he always had 10 or 15 different intros or titles, or whatever. Deethewriter from Saint Petersburg, Russia FederationIn 1988, Paul Rodgers of Bad Company sang Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay" at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, backed by Steve Cropper and Donald "Duck" Dunn of Booker T. & the MG's - the band that backed Redding on the original version of the song

One of Redding’s most famous songs, this was recorded shortly before he and most of his band were killed in a plane crash. The song was then released later in 1968, where it had great success and won awards, including two Grammys (Best R&B Song and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance). It would soon become the first posthumous hit in . music chart history, and arguably the biggest pop hit of Redding’s career. Dock of the Bay is sampled in many popular songs, including tracks by De La Soul, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and Blackalicious.
