"Just One More Day" was recorded live Otis Redding - In Person At The Whisky A Go Go under the supervision of Nesuhi Ertegun.

All selections in this album were originally recorded in stereo with the exception of "These Arms Of Mine", "That's How Strong My Love Is" and "Pain In My Heart". One these three tracks Al Jackson Jr., Donald "Duck" Dunn and the Memphis Horns duplicated the original parts in stereo so that the sides could be re-mixed in true stereo. ATCO Records would like to give special thanks to Jim Stewart for his help with this re-recording.
