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

January 25, 2011

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:

Tony Worsley With The Blue Jays – “Just A Little Bit” (1965)


Here’s the original version:

Tiny Topsy – “Just A Little Bit” (1959)


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:

Rosco Gordon – “Just A Little Bit” (1960)


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