Gimme Little Loving

(Sydney Crooks)

This song was written by Sydney Crooks in 1967 when he 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 recorded by several artists.
