Song of the day: Tony Worsley With The Blue Jays – "Just A Little Bit"

I enjoyed yesterday’s song from the Sixties so much that I’m in the mood for another one.

Here’s Australian artist Tony Worsley and his band The Blue Jays with a song that I find irresistible:

Here’s the original version:

If you’re wondering why the remake sounds nothing like the original, it’s probably because Tony Worsley’s version was modelled on another remake of the song. It’s by the American blues shouter Rosco Gordon, recorded a year after the original:

I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again plenty more times: I love music trivia.
