Little Bitty Pretty One

(Robert Byrd)

The song that put R&B singer-songwriter Robert Byrd (a.k.a. Bobby Day) on the musical map.  Originally recorded by Day & The Satellites in 1957, it here receives a spirited if verse-less arrangement from Robbins.  It has also been covered by Frankie Lymon, The Jackson Five, Cliff Richard, and Huey Lewis & The News.  If you keep waiting for the chord to change, it won’t:  The entire song is played in F.
