Thanks to Stax Records Facebook page for posting this jewel and reminder about Dave Prater's world travels. Dave is on the far right at the airport in London in March 1967.
And thanks to Jean Paul Pecreaux for his photo at Orly Airport as Sam and Dave arrive with Otis Redding in 1967.
Sadly, Redding died less than nine months later when his private jet plunged into a lake while on the way to Madison, Wisc., for a nightclub show.
Prater's sister Lillie remembers that after that crash Dave was extremely nervous about flying. He would call her to let her know he arrived safely after every airline flight.
