JUST A LITTLE BIT (Top Rank UK)
No hit for Rosco. The UK group The Undertakers (Liverpool) had the hit with this in the UK. I saw them perform it live at the Manchester Cavern club. I seem to remember they were on with Lulu & The Luvvers. Mitch Ryder also did an excellent version.
Rosco a piano player from Memphis Rosco Gordon had a hit in1952 in the USA with Booted (recorded at SUN Records):
“Got my pistol, got my knife, gonna get that guy that got my wife”
He did do great lyrics:
From Just a Little Bit:
“I don’t want much, I don’t want it all, just a teenie weenie bit of your love”
With fantastic chunky backing from saxophones, it was a huge track in 1964 and 1965 at the Twisted Wheel.
