     Gimme Little Loving

    (Sydney Crooks)



    This song was written in 1967 when Sydney Crooks was a member of the Jamaican group The Pioneers.  When he came to record it he realised it needed an additional vocalist and so after he had heard a young electrical welder sing outside the studio he decided to take him on.  The welder was Jackie Robinson and together they took the song to No. 3 on the Jamaican chart.  It has since been recording by several artists.

    This version is the B-Side to The Mexicano's successful "Move Up Starsky" released on 45 in 1978.
