I didn't know that The Black Crows did it as a cover until I just heard this original. Man! Otis has soul! He'll always be one of my favorite Motown artists!

Otis was way cool and definatley left his mark with great hits like this. I like many heard the Black Crowes version first but a quick read of the liner notes led me to seek out the Otis versaion. More should read the notes. Peace.

The Black Crowes version SUCKS compared to Otis, IMHO

I, too, am surprised this wasn't a Black Crowes original. Pretty impressive what Otis Redding was able to do before dying so young.

I never knew the Black Crows covered this. Their version was not that different than this one. Pretty impressive it was a hit then and almost 30 years later without being changed much. A good song is just a good song.
