Tales from the far Side 28.01.21 Home Cookin'

Try A Little Tenderness – Single Release from Bobby Mc

This is a song that most people will know but not like this. Although the song is almost 90 years old and been covered by many great artists like Otis Redding and Percy Sledge, Bobby Mc definitely puts his own feel on the classic with some modern touches. Produced by Mat Leppanen and released in conjunction with the London based independent label 'The Animal Farm', Bobby Mc's warm tones flow through this soul classic. He's joined on the track by Irish Piano Virtuoso Podge Kilbride.
