Just a Little Lovin’
Just a little lovin’
Early in the mornin’
Beats a cup of coffee
For starting off the day
Was this one wasted as a B-Side? Dusty obviously liked this one as this the next to “Son of the Preacher Man” the most performed song from the Dusty in Memphis Album.
In my opinion this one is a perfect fit to be on a B-Side as Son of a Preacher Man which was first rejected by Arether Franklin.
From todays point of view I can`t say if this song as an a side might have been a hit. We’ll never know.
Barry Man said about Dustys Version of the Song: “To me Dusty Springfield is one of the great female singers of all time. She has a voice like silk that can make your heart melt. Her interpretation of my song ‘Just a little Lovin’ is as good as it can get (and maybe even more).”*
- “Just a Little Lovin'”, a 1968 song by Dusty Springfield from Dusty in Memphis, covered by several performers
- Just a Little Lovin’, an 1970 album by Carmen McRae
