Hard To Love You

Album: Cracking The Code (2013)
  • This is a track from Stephen Dale Petit's Cracking The Code album, which was released on his own 333 records, and produced by Vance Powell (Willie Nelson, Jack White). Patti Boyd (the inspiration for the song "Layla") photographed the sleeve; the shoot took place in Waterlow Park, Highgate, London.
  • This song is about Eric Clapton. Petit explained to Mojo magazine: "He's a friend, but he is famous for blowing hot and cold."
