Description

 (retro video & audio edited) HQ

"Handy Man" is a rock and roll song written by singer Jimmy Jones and songwriter Otis Blackwell. Some recordings of "Handy Man" list Charles Merenstein as a co-writer, as does BMI.

It was originally recorded by The Sparks Of Rhythm, a group Jones had been a member of when he wrote it, although he was not with them when they recorded it. In 1959, Jones recorded the song himself, in a version which had been reworked by Blackwell, who also produced the session. "Handy Man" went to number three on the R&B charts and number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960, becoming a million seller.

The song was a hit again in 1964 for Del Shannon, and again for James Taylor, whose slow version was a hit in 1977.
