Best Covers: The Black Crowes ‘Hard to Handle’

‘Hard to Handle’ failed to take on the same resonance as Redding’s other songs until it was revived by a couple of white boys from Redding’s home state of Georgia: The Black Crowes.

The result would catapult the band into superstardom, reaching number one on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart and number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100, a notable improvement on the performance of their first single from Shake Your Money Maker, ‘Jealous Again’. The cover would become permanently associated with The Black Crowes, and the band continued to perform it throughout their career.
