Otis Redding – Hard To Handle (1968)


Otis Redding 1968

Kanye West and Jay-Z sang about Otis Redding in 2011 and took the opportunity to feature soul singer’s classic version of ‘Try a Little Tenderness‘. But to me, if someone asks me to think of a standout Otis track, I always call upon the funk sound and the vocal hooks of ‘Hard To Handle’. The single was released posthumously on ATCO Records, in the same year the world was tragically robbed of his talent.
